I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!


Thought the price of tickets could have been alittle cheaper for the exhibit. Enjoyed walking around to see how intelligent he was.

This was such a great trip. Patty thinks of everything. The night of a thousand candles was just amazing and a little shopping before was such fun.

The trip was fantastic! Had a great time at Brookgreen Gardens for the night of a thousand candles. Patty did a wonderful job with the trip and Danny did a great job driving us to and from the event. Thank you

We experienced a wonderful trip to Brookgreen Gardens with Patty and Dianna. The trip went very smoothly from start to finish and the weather was beautiful. Love seeing the Night of a Thousand Candles during the holiday season. Such a beautiful experience.
