Plan a day trip

    Are you visiting Raleigh or the Triangle area...we invite you to get outside the city for a day trip. Are you outlet shopping at Carolina Premium Outlets but want to plan something for the kids to do as a treat? Do you have friends and family visiting and you are looking for something to do? We have created several family fun, historical, and adventurous day trips for you.

    Find a Day Trip option that looks like fun -- and let us know how you enjoyed the itinerary by posting up photos and comments on our Facebook or Instagram pages, and feel free to use the hashtag #VisitJoCo!
