1.Friday’s on the Front Porch – Carolina Inn, Chapel Hill
It was 85, sunny, and the girls had just graduated pre-K! A celebration was in store and Friday’s on the Front Porch was the perfect way to honor the day. We first visited the Carolina Inn last year for the Santa breakfast and instantly fell in love with its upscale, southern charm. And following suit, the concert did not disappoint. The lawn was beautifully manicured with drink tables lining one end, the stage the other, and a good mix of sun and shade. Tickets can be purchased for drinks, food, and ice cream! The atmosphere at the concert was upbeat, fun, and the music that evening was on-point.
We opted for finer dining and enjoyed dinner at Crossroads, one of the restaurants at the Inn. Their outdoor dining space is conveniently located adjacent to the action so the girls were still able to enjoy running and dancing to the tunes as we waited for our meals. Crossroads received 5-stars from the Graves fam. Our waiter was friendly (shout out to Eliot!), the food was absolutely delish, AND here’s the kicker, reasonably priced! We can’t recommend this concert series and Crossroads enough. Do yourself and fam a favor tonight and go!
*pro-tip: Parking is located in the Nash Lot. I say this because we circled the Inn for 20-minutes….
