Get a taste of Carolina

North Carolina’s capital city is a foodie’s delight!

Raleigh’s downtown showcases many fine dining and eclectic eatery options. Along this guided walking tour with Taste Carolina, we’ll visit a number of locally owned restaurants. Our roving adventure will include plenty of food as well as drink pairings.

While the walks aren't long, please dress comfortably. Be sure to let us know your dietary restrictions and food allergies.

Golf experience: Up your game

Join us at Cary’s Prestonwood Country Club and get ready to up your game during a 90-minute golf swing clinic.

Prestonwood teaching pro staff will help you work on your full swing and short game and perfect your putting.

Following the swing clinic, enjoy a round of nine holes on the Prestonwood course. We’ll have a shotgun start on the “SAS Loop” of the Highlands Course for this nine-hole experience where you can perfect those newfound skills.
