3 Cool Things to Do on Hot Days in Raleigh


Summers and falls in North Carolina get hot and muggy. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to beat the heat – both here at LATITUDE and around town in Raleigh. Add these cool events and activities to your summer bucket list.

Where to Go Golfing in Raleigh

Typically, going golfing offers little to no reprieve from the heat. But it’s 2021, and now you can work on your swing on an air-conditioned, third-level terrace. Just walk over to Drive Shack, located 1.5 miles from LATITUDE off Corporate Center Drive. Rent a bay here to play interactive golf games while you enjoy tasty food and ice cold beverages, delivered directly to you. Had your fill of golf but still feeling competitive? Head inside to the retro arcade to play basketball, foosball, shuffleboard, and old-school Pac-Man.

Where to Go Swimming in Raleigh (& Beyond)

If you live at LATITUDE, you’re in luck. The best pool in the city is here onsite, complete with poolside cabanas and a hot tub! But we won’t be offended if you’re looking for something less relaxing and more exhilarating – like a giant wave pool or 76-foot slide. Your adrenaline rush awaits at Wet ’n Wild Emerald Pointe in Greensboro. Go swimming at the largest water park in both the Carolinas – you can be there in an hour if you leave now!

Where to Go Boating in Raleigh (& Beyond)

If you favor lakes over pools, that’s cool, too. Falls Lake is just half an hour from home. Spanning 12,000+ surface acres, you can go boating, kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, swimming, Jet Skiing, and more. Rent whatever you need to make it happen at Rollingview Marina, Lake Time Boat Rentals, or Motor-Boatin. Then, get out and explore the peaceful waters. 

Cool Off This Summer at LATITUDE

Whether it’s a dip in our sparkling swimming pool, a day at the lake, or an afternoon working on your swing, summertime in Raleigh is far from dull. Stay up to speed on what’s happening around our community on the LATITUDE at Hillsborough blog.
