Travel Guide: Raleigh, North Carolina

Y’all… when I tell you a girls trip is good for the soul, IT IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL. 🧳I went to Raleigh for a long weekend with some of my best girlfriends and it was such a fun trip. I hadn’t ever really had Raleigh on my bucket list to travel to but just given where my friends and I are all located right now, it seemed like a good trip choice. We truly just wanted a new city to explore all together and Raleigh (known as the “city inside a park”) was just that. Y’all know I always do extensive research and plan out trips well in advance. Between the craziness of the past couple of months, I looked up a few things to do but didn’t plan extensively which also made it fun when we could just pick what we wanted to do given the time of day it was without any pressure. We travelled down to North Carolina on a Friday and then left midday on Monday which gave us almost 3 full days to explore. I’m going to break down each day in this blog post so that it is clearly laid out in a chronological order.

Day 1: Friday

I came from Northern Virginia which meant Friday was largely spent in the car. Thankfully, my friend and I made the journey together so it wasn’t a lonely ride. It took us about 6 hours to arrive to our destination with a few stops here and there. One important thing to note is that we drove to meet our friend who already resides in North Carolina so we didn’t go straight to Raleigh right away. We caught up with our friend and got to explore where she now lives. The nice thing about heading down a day early was that we didn’t have to rush to Raleigh on Saturday and waste a day on travel, as soon as we arrived we could just begin exploring. If you are flying into Raleigh or if it is a farther drive, I highly recommend trying to make the most out of the travel day to make sure you can fit everything in.

Day 2: Saturday

Day 3: Sunday

Day 4: Monday

I couldn’t have asked for a better girls trip weekend away. It truly just meant the world that we were all able to schedule time out of our busy lives to make sure we nurtured our friendships and made the most out of the limited time we have together now. From living together as roommates our senior year of college to all embarking on our individual adult lives, our love for each other has only grown but as we all have different things going on, we always make the effort to spend time with each other. It’s so important to have friends you can trust and depend on no matter what season of life you are in. I know I am so thankful for all of my dear friends💗 I hope y’all enjoy the travel guides, I’ll keep them coming if you do like them.
