Capital Blvd and Martin Luther King Boulevard are full of character and beauty!
Don't take her to Harris Teeter if she has a weak heart, as the prices will give her a shock.....People pay how much for the same stuff you find in Walmart!!!!

I grew up in the OC (Irvine and South OC in general) and I am very impressed with Cary. Bring her here.

I'd take her around west cary from Maynard west to High House past Preston to 55, drive through HighCroft and then go over to Green Level Church Road to swing by Cary Park and then back by Carpenter Village then somehow get back over by Cary Academy.

Yes, so many lovely areas to choose from in the Triangle. When my family visited last week for the first time, I also wanted to show them the nicest spots. Here's where we took them:
Raleigh - ITB and Five points
Cary - pretty much all over, we live here!
Durham - Watts-Hillendale and some other older historic streets, Duke Gardens Southpoint area
Chapel Hill - UNC campus and surrounding area/Franklin St.
Carborro - to add a little "funk"

What he said.

You might also consider Pullen Park.

I'd second most of these selections with a particular emphasis on White Oak Rd. I'd also add St. Mary's Street, Lakeview Dr., Williamson Dr., Harvey St., Carr St., Holt Drive, Fairview Rd., Sussex Rd. and Lake Boone Trail from Ridge Road heading East. I'd also wind my way through Cameron Park and Oakwood. Now, mind you, all of these are old school Raleigh Roads and neighborhoods.

If it's new neighborhoods you wish to "show off", I'd suggest heading north of I-540 in Wake Co. where the Falls Lake watershed requires large lots in the rolling countryside. There are many new and newer monster home subdivisions out there that one can oogle.

If she's a Material Girl, then definitely drive through pricey neighborhoods. I used to make the long walk down to Old Hope Valley in Durham just to stroll past the enormous houses and steal landscaping ideas. (Look for Devon and Dover roads on any internet mapping program) I called it "reverse slumming"!
