This is the prize package for the FREE Raleigh Getaway:

-$25 gift certificate to Bloomsbury Bistro
-Free VIP admission for two to Rum Runners
-2 tickets to the North Carolina Theatre

***And furthermore, this site has Getaway Give-a-ways going all the way until December. So enter again, if you don't win this time. :-)

Anyway...Raleigh's Official Tourism Site just has a lot of fun activities listed. I appreciated the interactive visitor's guide on the left side....that makes reading a guide online a LOT easier. :-)

If I could go to any production at the theatre in the prize package, it would be NC Theatre's production of Man of La Mancha.

I have started looking at online pictures of "Cold Mountain" but I can't figure out where it is...I think maybe about 5 hours away. I would also like to see the leaves in Asheville, NC (about a 4-hour drive from Raleigh)...these are considered by many to be the most impressive Fall Foliage in the world.

I would love to take a NC Fall Getaway. Any Getaway would be nice right now. :-)
