Spend the Day with Friends in the Triangle

Are your best girlfriends coming to North Carolina for their first visit to your new home? Our REALTORS® have some suggestions about how to introduce them to some of the best things about living in one of our Triangle communities.  

Once they start exploring our area, the Triangle is certain to exceed their expectations. Delectable meals, exciting attractions, and some of the best shopping in North Carolina are here.

Here are six of our top picks for a day with your friends:


  1. Sugar Magnolia Cafe & Emporium – 219 South White Street, Wake Forest, NC 27587
    Sugar Magnolia Cafe is a great way for ladies to start any weekend out. A full range of 18 teas from traditional English Breakfast to Vanilla Mint and Oolong refresh you in the traditional tea room. Visit the adjoining emporium for local arts and crafts on two floors. In the evening, if you choose, you can catch live music in the lounge – all minutes from Wake Forest homes for sale.

  2. Blissful Journey Day Spa – 114 West Corbin Street, Hillsborough, NC 27278
    Blissful Journey Day Spa is where you want to rejuvenate and revitalize after a day of looking at Hillsborough homes for sale. It has one of the fullest selections of any spa in the Triangle. From facials to massage therapy, body treatments to reflexology, you'll be invigorated in ways you never imagined. You can even get a complete makeover.

  3. Alley Twenty Six – 320 East Chapel Hill Street, Durham, NC 27701
    Alley Twenty Six is a classy restaurant featuring upscale dining perfect to cap off one evening of your special weekend. The menu is known for its delightful small plates. Larger meals include pan-seared Scottish salmon and seared cauliflower "steak." Don't miss the decadent desserts. It's just one more reason Durham homes for sale are some of the sweetest in the Triangle.

  4. Salon Blu – 6617-103 Falls of Neuse Road, Raleigh, NC 27615
    Salon Blu is one of Raleigh's leading salons and will have you looking your best in no time, even if you've been putting in hours comparing Raleigh homes for sale. Choose a full suite of services to cut, texture, color, and treat your hair. Blu is famous for its blowouts! Plus, the salon staff will cheerfully accommodate your entire ladies' night party – just ask.

  5. Tanger Outlets - 4000 Arrowhead Blvd., Mebane, NC 27302
    Allow time in your schedule for "retail roving" with your friends at Mebane's Tanger Outlets. With more than 70 stores to choose from, you and your gal pals can shop 'til you drop at any of the well-known outlet stores.  Don't forget to stop by the outlet's Shopper Services office to pick up your Little Red Book of Big Savings to make the most of your shopping experience. Tanger Outlets are just around the corner from some of the best Mebane homes for sale.

  6. Downtown Chapel Hill – 308 West Rosemary Street Suite 202, Chapel Hill, NC 27516
    For the ultimate shopping around the Triangle, it's downtown Chapel Hill to the rescue. Although there are many shopping plazas in the region, the selection and service near Chapel Hills homes for sale stand in a class by itself. From clothes and shoes to jewelry and florists, downtown will wow you with dozens of shops and nearly 100 eateries.

The fun never has to stop once you find your ideal home right here in the Triangle.  Once your friends decide to make North Carolina their permanent home too, tell them to contact us for the help they'll need to get started.
