Fun things to do, see, and go to in Raleigh.

Let me start by saying that I apologize for the lack of posts during the summer months, but if you remember from an earlier post I had quite a large reading list for the summer, which got knocked out by the way. Not included in that post was the numerous papers that were included as part of reading those books. Thankfully I am about one day away from putting the finishing touches on my last paper, leaving me with two finals before the summer semester comes to an end!

Now, the purpose of this post is to give a quick look at the cool places I have discovered to do, see, and go to in the city of Raleigh in my first year living here. It amazes me that it was almost one year ago that I was packing up my condo and gearing up for the move to Raleigh. The transition was not as easy as I was expecting to say the least, but after one year I have gotten used to being away from the small town beach life to now being in mid-size city life.

This list in no way captures everything there is to do and see in the wonderful city of Raleigh, but this is what I have discovered in one year. Do note, that I have discovered something new almost every week, including a couple on this list just this past friday. And this list is in no way in any particular order, but things I have come to appreciate in Raleigh and things and places you should check out when you come here to visit:

1.The Pit
