About this trip

Escape the winter blahs with a shopping day trip to Durham and Raleigh.  The trip features, The Streets of Southpoint in Durham which is always popular with my passengers due to the abundance of options not available to us at our Coastal homes.  Here are just a few worth mentioning, Macy's, Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, Crate and Barrel, Sur la Table, Apple, Anthropologie, Brighton and Cole Haan.  There will also be plenty of time to enjoy lunch with friends at full service options such as The Cheesecake Factory, Nordstrom Cafe Bistro or Zinburger Wine & Burger.  A Food Court is available for the more serious shoppers.   New to Southpoint!  The popular catalog company, Soft Surroundings has recently opened a store.  Soft Surroundings offers beautifully designed and unique clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding and beauty & fragrance products.  


On the way home, we stop in Raleigh at the NC State Farmers Market.  There are two buildings to enjoy here.  Building One filled with early spring plants and produce from local farms.  Building Two features artisan foods, gifts and specialty items.

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!

It was a great trip. Patty designed our travel so there were three hours at the mall, plenty of time to have lunch as well as shop. Patty is a great hostess, offering water and snacks during the bus ride. I look forward to my next trip by Patty.

We had a wonderful time.....love traveling with Patty......Can't wait for our next adventure. Thank you Patty and crew, Maureen
A wonderful shopping trip. I always have a great time on Trips by Patti. And I will continue to take her trips.
We all had a wonderful time, even with the rain. The tours were very interesting, especially the Gullah tour, which was very eye opening. I lived in the area for three years and had no clue about the history of Beaufort. Patty is a GEM!
My husband and I enjoyed Beaufort SC. We met great people on the bus trip, laughed a lot, enjoyed dining at local restaurants, and learned some History. The accomodations were comfortable and a great location close to Downtown Beaufort. Patty always is well organized an ensures her travelers are happy, comfortable, and are enjoying the traveling experience.
