Did you know that in roughly one month, summer will officially be over?! The next few weeks are vital for those who continue to shelter in place throughout phase two of our city reopening but are eager to enjoy a little bit of the season before it’s over. We understand that it can be frightening to go back out into the world, knowing that the COVID-19 pandemic is still a threat. However, one of the many perks of living in the Raleigh, NC area, is that there is plenty to do that is fun, relaxing, and safe! Don’t believe us? You’ll just have to continue reading to learn about four summertime activities that our team here at International Business Concepts are huge fans of!
Relax your body and mind at Zin Yoga Studio and Wine Lounge
Yoga and wine? Count us in! Exercise is a great way to relieve your body and mind of stress. Times are troubling, and for many of us, it is taking a toll physically. Gyms are currently still closed. However, Zin Yoga Studio and Wine Lounge is offering outdoor yoga classes for free! Now, you can get out of the house, enjoy a glass of wine, and clear your mind of negativity. What more could you ask for?
Spend the day on the water
As a coastal state, most North Carolinians are big fans of the water. Although we are a few hours away from the beach here in Raleigh, we have lakes perfect for kayaking. A few must-visit lakes are Lake Raleigh, Harris Lake County Park, and Neuse River Canoe Trail. Our advice is to grab your kayak, spend a relaxing day on the water touring the area, listening to music, and reading a book!
Watch a movie at the Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre
Open seven nights a week, the Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre is the perfect activity for you movie buffs! You can take in a movie and even order cooked foods from your car. We think that this activity is a great way to spend time with family and friends safely!
Take a trip to the NC Zoo
Although not located in Raleigh, the NC Zoo is only an hour and a half drive away. As the world’s largest natural habitat zoo, with 500 developed acres, this is a North Carolina summertime must! Open daily between 9 AM and 5 PM, you and your family can spend the whole day visiting the exhibits, watching the animals eat, and making memories to last a lifetime. Due to the COVID-19 virus, the zoo now invites visitors to pre-purchase a timed entry ticket before their visit. Other precautions that they have taken are insisting all visitors wear a mask, and they have closed all indoor exhibits to promote social distancing better.
See, there is plenty to do this summer in North Carolina that is fun and safe! The countdown to fall is on. Don’t miss out on the fun that you can only have when the days are long. From all of us here at International Business Concepts, we wish you an exciting last few weeks of summer.
