Weekend Picks: August 25th – 27th


Neuse River Greenway – Raleigh, NC

This weekend the temps should be a bit cooler making it a great time to head outdoors. One of my favorite places to enjoy some time outside is the Neuse River Greenway, which now stretches over 27 miles from Falls Lake in North Raleigh all the way down to Johnston County. If you are looking for other fun things to check out this weekend below are my top three picks. Also, make sure you check out the latest coffee news about two cool new shops to check out at the bottom of this post. Happy Exploring!

Coffee shops to visit while you’re out and about….

There is a new coffee shop in Chapel Hill on West Franklin Street called Perennial Coffee & Pastries. Looks like a cozy spot to grab a latte made with Counter Culture Coffee.

And Cocoa Cinnamon’s Lakewood location is now open and operating in “beta-mode” as they tweak the space in menu during roll-out. During beta-mode they are open until 10pm this Friday and Saturday (Closed Sunday). Make sure you get a churro!
