A Stroll in the Park with Nanny Boutique

            Here at the Nanny Boutique, we do a lot of hotel babysitting and out-of-towners are always asking us what it is like to live in the Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Apex area.  They know that our area consists of many booming and neighboring cities and that many businesses make up our Raleigh area, but what they don’t realize is how green our busy city life is.  It doesn’t matter if you are in Morrisville, Holly Springs, Cary, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, or Durham… everywhere you look there are trees and grass- which means there are plenty of parks around every corner!  In fact there are so many parks in our Raleigh Durham area, which it sometimes almost makes it difficult to choose which one to go to!

            Did you know that Raleigh itself has two state parks?  William B. Umstead park in Morrisville and Raleigh offers 22 miles worth of hiking trails along with camping, picnicking, canoe rentals, fishing, horseback riding, and mountain biking trails.  Falls Lake State Recreational Area in North Raleigh also offers camping, hiking, picnicking fishing, and boating as well as swimming, and playgrounds.  The best part is that admission is free with small rental fees for the canoes. Between these two parks, there is plenty of fun for the whole family- and that’s not the end of it!

            It may seem like two state parks are enough, but there are over 59 parks in the greater Raleigh area.  Between Fuquay-Varina, Apex, Chapel Hill, Durham, Morrisville, Cary, and Raleigh, there are more than 10,000 acres of Greenways and recreational areas for you and the family to explore.  Some of our favorites include: Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, Fred G. Bond Park in Cary, Shelley Lake Park in Raleigh, Morrisville Community Park in Morrisville, Bass Lake Park in Holly Springs, Homestead Park in Chapel Hill, and Apex Community Park in Apex.

            Have you been to any of these parks lately? During these warm summer months, it’s always nice to get outdoors and find some inexpensive activities for the family! And the next time you run into an out-of-towner?  Well you’ll certainly know where to tell them to visit!  So what are you waiting for?  There’s a park somewhere in Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Apex, or Chapel Hill right around the corner waiting for you and your family!

The Nanny Boutique is a nanny and babysitting agency that specializes in placing caregivers or babysitters and nannies in the Apex, Raleigh, Durham, Cary and Chapel Hill areas.
