Join me on this leisurely urban hike in Downtown Raleigh. First we will visit the Executive Mansion to enjoy live holiday music and view the home decked out with Christmas trees, greenery, floral arrangements and decorations. Then we'll walk around the Historic Oakwood, North Carolina largest intact 19th century neighborhood. We will look at Victorian houses and learn about their architecture and history. We'll finish our walk at the Historic Oakwood cemetery. On our way to the parking lot we will stop for a nice hot cup of coffee at Brewerks Café & Bakery.

We'll meet in Downtown Raleigh at 10:00 AM. The overall distance will be about 3-4 miles and will take us about 3 hours.

Make sure you're wearing comfortable shoes and warm clothes, we'll make a lot of stops and take a lot of pictures.

You can bring kids but no dogs.
