Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: RDU #BestTown2015
You know the Triangle is a great place to live if you’re an adventure-loving type. But have you ever had trouble convincing friends elsewhere of the fact?
You can actually mountain bike there — on more than 100 miles of singletrack?
There’s a 107-mile trail that runs through town?
Oh, please — you’re telling me you can scuba dive there, as well?
Yup. It’s all true. Here’s 90 Seconds of evidence. And if you’re still not convinced, check out this convincing case we make with our friends at Great Outdoor Provision Co. Then, once you’re informed, exercise your democratic right and vote!
