Date Night in The Triangle

Date Night in The Triangle

Trendy, intimate restaurants and cocktail bars. Vibrants arts and culture. Hidden gems around every corner. No part of North Carolina says romance quite like the Triangle area around Raleigh! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there are so many downtown hotspots close to your new home to celebrate with your sweetheart.

 

Whether you love to enjoy a gourmet meal or indulge in a new experience, you’re bound to find something special just minutes from your custom new home in the Triangle. Take a look at our winter 2020 recommendations for romantic fun around the beautiful Triangle area in North Carolina:

 

Couple at bar.

Eat & Imbibe

 

Garland: Get your taste buds ready — this Triangle treasure serves authentically delicious Indian and Asian cuisine in a fun and funky atmosphere. After dinner, head downstairs for a cocktail in the subterranean bar.

 

Crawford and Son: You can expect a top-notch meal at this sleek yet cozy eatery, with dishes like crispy catfish, hamachi crudo, chicken confit, and more. Just make sure to save room for desserts like the orange creamsicle.

 

Brewery Bhavana: Tucked into the historic Moore Square Park, this high-end dim sum restaurant (plus flower shop, bookstore, and brewery) has been named the #10 best new restaurant in the country… come see why!

 

Watts & Ward: Slink into this vintage-inspired basement cocktail bar and taste-test the city’s most delectable cocktails. You’ll come for the cool ambiance and vibe and stay for the happy moments with the one you love.

 

Couple in the city.

Enjoy the Experience

 

Videri Chocolate Factory: Satisfy your sweet tooth with your sweetheart at this candy lover’s oasis. Take a tour and shop your favorite chocolates to bring back for a “night cap” in your Homes By Dickerson home. 

 

The Cary Theater: Quaint, charming, and as cool as can be, this old-fashioned theater offers indie films, music, and live performances including comedy and improv. Revel in the romance of your favorite entertainment.

 

Triangle Rock Club: Who knew breaking a sweat could melt your heart? If you both love a little adventure, this vibrant gym is the spot for you. From rock climbing to yoga, you’ll get your hearts pumping in no time.

 

Irregardless Cafe: There’s something undeniably romantic about live music — especially at a venue as sweet as this. Enjoy a band you’ve never seen before in a small, intimate setting with food, cocktails, and more.

From all of us at Homes By Dickerson, we hope you enjoy a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Spring Open House Tour in Wendell Falls!

Spring Open House Tour in Wendell Falls!

As Wendell Falls has stated, “It’s a great day for a joy ride!” and Homes By Dickerson does like to bring joy to others.  So, however you have decided to spend your March 9th (this Saturday!), make sure to include an afternoon at the Spring Open House Tour in Wendell Falls where you can grab one of the bicycles and take a tour of this incredible community!  Strap on a helmet, cruise by the amenity centers (fitness, pool, slides, playgrounds, dog parks, amphitheater and more!) and then head out for the trails, the trees, and of course… the falls!   Speaking of cruising, make sure you stop by the brand new Cruizers and see the oh-so-cool mural with its bright colors and artistic design.

Then of course while you are out about (fingers crossed for some Carolina blue skies and spring air!), you are going to want to stop in and see the Homes By Dickerson team in our new solar-powered model home (one of the first solar-powered model homes in the state!).

 

If you have not had a chance to tour the Concord model home, you are in for a treat!  Vaulted ceilings, stained beams, built-in shelving, custom trim details, barn doors, and so much more await you in our 2018 Parade of Homes Gold Winner!  Oh, and of course there will be snacks-as in ice cold margaritas and chips with salsa and dips.  I don’t know about you but I cannot think of a better way to spend a North Carolina spring afternoon than experiencing the charming sights and sounds of Wendell Falls.

March 9th from 12pm-5pm, “It will be a great day for a joy ride!”
