Its Not Just For The Dogs

Its Not Just For The Dogs

Last weekend, for the first time, I introduced my 1-year old Lab mix to Falls Lake. I couldn’t decide what site was better- watching the amazement in my dogs eyes as he discovered the art of swimming or realizing that the beautiful view in front of me was a mile from my home! I remember when my family and I investigated buying a home in North Raleigh. We really liked the area but once we saw the lake with its hiking trails and canoeing access, there was no turning back.  Did you know that Falls Lake spans out over 12,000 acres and extends 28 miles?  It has miles and miles of hiking trails all along the south side and offers Camping in the Shinleaf Recreational area in Wake County (and one spot in Durham). I only just learned that you could do some great fishing there too with three designated fishing areas. My family and I have had several weekend getaways at one of the various campsites and have enjoyed the beach areas, hiking trails and boat access.  Last summer my husband took SUP boarding lessons on the lake and I’ve got friends who compete in the Annual spring triathlon that is done on the lake. When you’re new the Greater Triangle Area or you’ve just never taken advantage to what’s right outside your back door, wander around Falls Lake. You’ll find yet another reason to love the Raleigh area.
