I want to share the places my wife and I have found while dating in Raleigh.
Please take this a “work-in-progress” list, and comment with your own favorites below.
This is a great opening for an afternoon stroll through downtown.
Go upstairs for a chat, and then plan your day with an amazing cup of coffee.
Go inside, close the door, and wait for a while until your eyes adapt to the dark. Stroll down the Sarah P Duke Gardens for a lighthearted conversation.RALEIGH IS A SPREAD OUT CITY that grows fast, like a drop of oil in water, so it requires some driving to move around.It has everything you would want from a large city, including indie and eclectic options all around.There’s a Chocolate Factory in Raleigh, and it’s free to visit!Make sure you ask for a hot cocoa, and sit down for a while.Make sure you get to the Japanese Garden and the historic Roney Fountain to take some selfies.Right by NC State Centennial Campus, you’ll find this wonderful set of gardens.As a tip, you could grab something from Neomonde nearby and bring it here. A cool picnic idea is to go to the Krispy Kreme factory, bring the box here, grab a bench, smell the roses, and relax together.When you’re done, check out the Raleigh Little Theater.It’s a free option to walk around and enjoy the sights.Make sure you visit the Japanese Garden, and take pictures of the picturesque houses.
