North Carolina Museum of Art – New Project!

filename-rodin-gardenOn December 10th, it was announced that the North Carolina Museum of Art would be undergoing a new 164-acre project thanks to an anonymous donation! The project is a park campus that will include greenways, bike trails, and new art of course. The vision for this project started long ago in the late ’80s and is finally able to come to life now! More information can be found in the article linked below.

PNC Arena – Raleigh NC

You can catch the NC State Men’s Basketball team or the Carolina Hurricanes playing a game at the PNC Arena located in Raleigh, NC. If you ever go to a Hurricanes game on the same evening that there was a Basketball game, I highly recommend you show up to the arena early! The staff works really fast in transforming the court back into the icy atmosphere needed for the later game. I have seen it happen a couple times and I cannot get over how cool it is to watch!

The PNC Arena came to Raleigh in October 1999 along with the move of the Hartford Whalers Hockey Team to NC. It can hold over 19,000 fans for a basketball game or a little over 18,000 during ice hockey games. In addition to housing these teams, you can catch a number of LIVE shows in the arena from musical performances (such as Brantley Gilbert coming in October) to ice performances like the anticipated Frozen on Ice. Check out the link below for a schedule of events coming to the PNC Arena in Fall 2014 through 2015!

Sports!

We are well into school starting up, which can only mean one thing…College Sports have started as well! Which Teams do you follow? In Raleigh, the huge triple tie is between Wolfpack, Tar Heel and Duke Fans. You can catch a number of games, whether you are into Basketball, Soccer, Baseball, or Football depending on the season. Cary also has a Baseball complex that houses Olympic Youth and the US Tournament of Stars! You don’t have to travel very far to get your fill of sports in the Triangle Area.

Keep an eye on posts through out this week as I highlight some of the main facilities where you can attend games during the Fall season. I will not show bias, though I will admit that one of my children went to NC State!

Raleigh, NC

Raleigh NC Skyline Typically we have a different theme that runs through out the week, previously with ideas such as Local Breweries, Bed and Breakfast, etc. Last week we went over places in the Cary area for you to check out. This week we are going to be posting about places in Raleigh! Now, there are a lot and we cannot hit all of them, but we will do our best to hit on the major locations. We have posted about the first Bed and Breakfast in Wake County being in Raleigh, as well as some breweries. Look through the right hand menu for more categories! There is a lot to Raleigh, from the day time events to the night life.

If you have a small business, event coming up, or even just want to talk about Real Estate in the Triangle NC then please feel free to contact me!

Raleigh is FULL of Community Centers!

In the city of Raleigh there are 25 different community centers spread through out! Each offers different programs for families, no matter what age, including fitness, arts and youth centered programs. I can’t sit here and list them all out for you, because that would be far too much information for you to take in so I shall point out a few!

Brier Creek ParkOne of them is Brier Creek Park, located on the campus of Brier Creek Elementary School. It is 10 acres and was built in 2006. The facility includes an air conditioned gymnasium, fitness room, art room, meeting rooms and a kitchen used for catering
