About this trip

The opening of a travelingl exhibit at the country's first state supported art museum in Raleigh is the perfect time to enjoy not only "A Modern Vision: European Masterworks from The Phillips Collection" but the amazing permanent collection at the museum as well.  The Phillips Collection features 50 paintings by iconic artists such as Edgar Degas, Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Paul Cezanne.  Beyond your timed admission to experience this collection there will be time to spend in the other dozen galleries holding works from around the world and a variety of art types.  African, European, Egyptian, American and Jewish works grace the galleries.  Thirty Rodin sculptures lead the holdings of this artist's work in the southeastern United States and monumental art installations dot the landscape outside of the museum.  

In addition to our museum visit we make a stop at The Transfer Food Hall in Raleigh for lunch.  This food hall exhibits culinary art with a variety of creative offerings in a casual setting.  Italian specialties, Asian delicacies and even delicious bagel sandwiches are just a few of the choices you will have at this food hall located in the historic Carolina Coach Garage.

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!

The trip was very good. Enjoyed the day hike, would of liked a little more but know the second hike was cancelled due to difficulty for bus to navigate the access road. Maybe also had a little more time in Asheville. Patty was an excellent guide and had everything well organized. The accommodations were good and centrally located.

As usually Patty did a fantastic job planning every aspect of the trip. We had a wonderful, effortless time since she did all the work.

I had a fantastic time!! I particularly enjoyed the LaZoom Comedy bus tour. 1 1/2 hours of hysterical fun while learning about Asheville's history and present day points of interest!!! And a glass of wine can go along with you on the bus. Beautiful hotel with spacious rooms and a cool rooftop bar and comfy outdoor furnishings.

Another awesome trip with Patty! Perfect day for a hike to see several waterfalls, followed by a fun comedy historic bus tour of Asheville. Start to fun finish shopping in BlackMountain, planning and execution was fun for 40+ people.
