What we're about

Are you looking for a melting pot of many new activities and fun in the Raleigh & Triangle area, and a great group of new friends to do them with? This group was started to welcome new arrivals in town, and it has grown from there.

If you'd like to become an event organizer (plan and run events), please let me know. Are you new in town, new to getting out, or just looking for fun new activities? We have several event organizers posting diverse kinds of activities for everyone's taste and enjoyment.

Find fun things to do, cool places to go, and a bunch of new friends to hang out with along the way. This group is purely a social group with a good heart, and good friends. Singles, couples, youthful or seasoned, you are all welcome here.
