This is the group for you if you want to get out and have fun exploring the Durham area and beyond while making new friends. We have previously visited the Honeysuckle Tea House, toured the Videri Chocolate Factory, took in the sights at the NC Chinese Lantern Festival, toured the Duke Lemur Center, made a trip to the local gardens … and much more! We have a scheduled outing once per month. Your suggestions for activities are always welcome.

We meet at the Woodcroft Professional Building to carpool. We leave as soon as all that have confirmed to attend have arrived or 10 minutes after the scheduled meeting time.
