This is my first Spring & summer living in Raleigh (I did go to college just down the road in Chapel Hill, but it’s been seven years since graduating!). I am a huge fan of seasonal to-do lists, and I had one for every season + every year while living in Washington, DC for six years. It’ll be so fun to explore a whole new city (or three, if you include Durham + Chapel Hill, which I am!) and find so many new adventures to go on. There’s not much better than getting out and about to explore your city; finding hidden gems, well-known favorites, and experiencing fun events + activities with your people!

I’ve been doing a little research, and I think this is a pretty good start to what’s sure to be a fun Spring + summer! What am I missing, friends?! I’m sure there are so many more activities and adventures to add to this list, and let me know any of your favorites!
