Hi, new transplant here. Is there a great site that recommends great activities for upcoming weekends (for families and for couples)? For instance, if I'm looking for things to do this weekend, its hard for me to see which things are "the best" since I'm unaware of a lot of the attractions in the area..... thanks for your insight!

For a while, there was a thread here each week about fun things to do each weekend. That's a great place to look, of course. Other great sources are the Spectator magazine (free, at most grocery stores, lots of restaurants, bars); and the What's Up section in each Friday's N&O.

Also check the Independent (free weekly paper) and Downtown Raleigh Alliance :: Welcome. This Saturday there will be a scavenger hunt (broken link)in downtown Raleigh that looks like it could be fun.

The Spectator got assimilated into the Independent.

I was going through some really old boxed up stuff the other day and found a Spectator from 2003. I miss that paper! It had cool things to do and didn't take itself as seriously as the Independent. That paper kind of depresses me!

Shows how aware I am... I have a copy of the Independent on my table open to an article and I just called it the Spectator without even thinking. Sorry.

Also check parkgeek.com. That site lists all sorts of things to do in area parks, and most of it is free!
