The Big Fun Guide to Tar Heel Country Giveaway

I promised you we'd be back with your chance to win a free copy of The Big Fun Guide to Tar Heel Country. So here it is, your chance to get your hands on this book!

Ok, honestly, we love our blog. And we hope it gives you the information you need to get going to fun adventures with your kids. However, even though we changed some settings to make this blog friendlier on your mobile device, we know that you can't take us with you. We also know that we are not comprehensive and sometimes we miss things. So you really need to keep a copy of The Big Fun Guide to Tar Heel Country in your car. At all times. I do.

This fabulous book by Erin Donoghue Baldwin has over 135 outings for families. It focuses primarily on Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Hillsborough, and Pittsboro. But I can also tell you there are some gems in Durham and Raleigh, too. The information is great, with notes on stroller accessibility, food options, bathrooms, and more. It was just published in 2008 so the information is still current.

Now that you are itching to get your copy, here is how:

- Just post a comment telling us your favorite activity (yup, you have to pick one) to do with your family in the Triangle.

That's all.

We'll select the winner at random next Sunday night and announce here on our blog.

Good luck!

Favorite activity with the kids is the Museum of Life and Science...but the whole family? Duke Gardens, definitely!

We are still fairly new to the area (3 years), so we are still looking for new places. The Marbles Kids Museum is our son's favorite place so far.

Our family like to take hikes together in Duke Forest off of Eubanks road! :)

We love the parks, as a family, especially Gold Park in Hillsborough, which is really close and newer than most.

We love to go for hikes all around the area!

One of our favorite activites is the Durham Farmer's Market/Central Park. We visit the turtle and cardinal, pick up something to nibble, get soap samples that fit nicely into little pockets, enjoy some live music and stock up on fresh produce.

There's many other favorites, though--this is such a great area to raise children in!

We really like going to the "Dino Museum" AKA the Museum of Natural Science in downtown Raleigh. The museum itself is free, but if there is a special exhibit you will have to pay for that. We have been taking our almost 7 year old for years. Always something to learn!

Our 3year old's favorite is riding the free Chapel Hill bus around town.

Hard to pick just one! But ... we like going for walks at Shelley Lake and Lake Lynn.

Cool giveaway! We are very new to the area, but one of our favorites is the NC Botanical Gardens.

Walks at Shelley Lake and feeding the ducks there with our kids

We like the playground at the Chapel Hill Community Center. (And loved Green Level Gourd Farm's October/Halloween activities, but alas, that's seasonal!)
