So there are only 85 Things To Do in the Triangle? (We're not including restaurants.) Surely that can't be true.

Please add to the list!

89. Band Together Festival at the Lincoln Theatre
90. New Year's Parade and watch the acorn drop downtown
91. Visit Marble's Museum - great place to spend an afternoon with kids
92. Drink good margaritas outside at festive Dos Taquitos on Creedmoor
93. Feed the ducks, geese, fish and turtles from the bridge at Shelly Lake
94. Catch a free outdoor concert at North Hills
95. Sit outside, play cards or chess and smoke hookah (tobacco!) at the Sahara Hookah Cafe on W. Peace Street
96. Enjoy a walk through the woods and play disc golf at Kentwood Park
97. 4th of July fun small town parade in downtown Apex
98. Catch a comedy show at Charlie Goodnights

How about:

101. Go to North Hills shopping center and enjoy the small Farmer's Market -- and they often have live music.

A great list! Thank you!!! So now when someone says there's nothing to do here, we'll direct them to this thread.

We have, at least, 101 things to do!

Feel free to keep it going if you'd like...

This weekend is Artsplosure in downtown Raleigh and "It's got to be NC" fair/carnival at the fairgrounds -- sort of like a mini-state fair with the rides.

Thumbs up Top things to see/do in Raleigh for a transplant...

Good morning all!

I have been here 6 months now and it has occurred to me that I have spent ALL of my time working and no playing or getting out AT ALL (besides outings with my 5 year old lol). TIME FOR ME TO GET A LIFE, I mean REALLY. Some of you may be able to relate....

In an effort to get to REALLY KNOW the area, I am requesting your ideas on "Things to Do/See".

Please list 3 to 5 places to visit. I am starting today. I am a single parent, in my 40's with varied interests that range from Jazz to Art to most things! In other words, I'm pretty open and enjoy learning about new things so don't hold back. My schedule if flexible, I work from home.

THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT! This will be very helpful to me and I'm sure others to come.
