Summer Adventure List 2015


The best part of working for myself is the flexibility. Hands down. No other benefit or paycheck could trump that. I have the luxury to be home with my sons after school and manage my work to suit to their summer schedules. For a few years now we’ve had a family “summer adventure list.” I guess you might it’s become a thing. As we hear about places throughout the year we take note of something that is summer adventure worthy. There are no rules for our summer adventures, but free is always a good thing. We stick to local spots or venture off on day trips.

Here’s what’s in store for this summer:

Nasher Art Museum

Duke Gardens

The Lily Pond at Duke Gardens in Raleigh, NC

Conservators Center
