If you are looking for a laidback afternoon activity to unwind with family or friends, head over to Raleigh International Airport Observation Park to overlook the planes scrapping the runway. Pair the views with a bucket of fried chicken or a nice picnic while gazing out at a gorgeous sunset. This is the perfect setting to enjoy if you are in search of a relaxing evening. There is nothing like listening to the influx of planes and then watching them soar into the clouds as they depart to another location. Be sure to grab a football, soccer ball—you name it—before heading to the park. There is plenty of space to pass, shoot, and score on the well kept lawn, lined with walking loops and benches.
