The Perfect Day for an Adrenaline Junkie

Greater Raleigh has a wide array of activities and events that can satisfy any true adrenaline junkie’s cravings. Whether you like to jump into the action yourself or cheer on your favorite team at an intense sporting event, this area can get your adrenaline pumping. A perfect day for you might go a little something like this:
Any day is made a better day by some early morning activity to get you going. Wake up with the sunrise and carpe diem through any type of outdoor exercise. Go on a naturally scenic hike through Umstead State Park or bike on the trails of the N.C. Museum of Art to get your heart rate up and prepare yourself for a fun and exciting day.
After you’ve worked out, you can cool down with a less active but equally exciting activity, such as boating and sailing on Falls Lake, playing golf at the new Lonnie Poole Golf Course or fishing at any of the numerous lakes and rivers in the area.
Now that you’ve had ample outdoor fun, head over to Rush Hour Karting for some indoor go-kart racing with family and friends. Here, you can warm up your competitive spirit before attending any number of sports games in the area, from collegiate games to Carolina Hurricanes hockey, Carolina RailHawks soccer, or Carolina Mudcats baseball. Just see when they’re scheduled and take your pick!
A day like this is just an example of all the fun an adrenaline junkie can have in Greater Raleigh!
