Few things really usher in Summer like an outdoor concert in The Triangle. We have gathered some of the top outdoor concert series for you to enjoy the best local venues, beverages, foods and of course music. It is unusual for new pop ups and breweries to not be involved where local music is, so this will cover both. One of the things that is really special about some of these series is that they run all summer long and are sponsored by really great organizations. If you are new to the area and were looking to meet people and get involved, we highly recommend concert series. Looking for a home in one of these areas? Feel free to browse homes on our site.

Our Favorite Places to Visit in the Triangle in Spring

Social Isolation Is an Opportunity to Explore the Outdoors

It's starting to feel like a whole new world as we settle into "social distancing" as a result of the COVID-19, or commonly referred to as Coronavirus. The Triangle area is fortunate to have the benefit of not only an earlier spring than most but also an abundance of outdoor activities.

According to an article from MentalFloss "Scientists think that breathing in phytoncides—airborne chemicals produced by plants - increases our levels of white blood cells, helping us fight off infections and diseases." So pack a lunch, hand sanitizer, and plenty of water and come along as we explore some of our favorite places to visit in the Triangle in the Spring.
