Most of us love spring and North Carolina does it justice with its burst of colors and the onset of all kinds of outdoor events.

Here are a few things you might consider doing in your spare time.

Travel to see the Wildflowers.

This state’s wildflowers start blooming early March and stretch out to June. Bring your ipad with you to help you identify flowers like trout lilies and violets, and lady slippers, even Trilliums, (which happen to be the Provincial Flower of Ontario, Canada) . You might consider going to the Blue Ridge Parkway or Grandfather Mountain or Chimney Rock, take your hiking shoes!.

We just missed Flowers in Bloom at the NC Museum of Art, however you can head to the Biltomore in Asheville, call in advance to find out when their peak blooming season is. My personal favorite is in Durham. I have spent hours at Sarah P. Duke Gardens. Put on your calendar the tour of private gardens during the North Carolina Azalea Festival (April 5-9),

Baseball starts, check out the Durham Bulls, or Charlotte Knights . There are other wonderful teams in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Kannapolis and Zebulon. Beautiful ballparks, great places to spend an evening or afternoon.

Look around your area for outdoor music festivals. Bring a blanket, mosquito repellant and perhaps a picnic if the venue allows it.

Bet you didn’t know that North Carolina has some very cool wineries….put them on your weekend to do for fun list…..at Raffaldini, Childress, Zimmerman and other wineries. JOLO Winery at Pilot Mountain and Jones vonDrehle Vineyards

Head to the Ocean
North Carolina has approximately320-mile of shoreline. Its still off- season now, go and explore while the beaches remain peaceful.

Bike Ride Anyone

There are some very cool , organized bike rides you can get with. Try the Burnsville Metric, April 29, 2017- 71 miles by the way. Coming up on the coast is the Outer Banks Duathlon on April 9, Or in the Triangle, we have miles and miles and miles of geenway and bike paths……

Enjoy yourself, this is a great state to live in with so much to offer.
