Reminder: I Like Autumn Friends, In case you have somehow missed my autumn Publisher’s Note over the past four years, may I remind you: I like autumn. What is there not to like? We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. North Carolina comes alive in the fall – the music, the festivals, the smell of baked apples, the pumpkins and costumes and the tree lined roadways that look like Mother Nature threw open her bag of skittles. The crackling fires, the football games and the wonderful opportunity to gather with friends and family to celebrate and give thanks.

Marketing Maranda Duff Photography Catherine Davis of SD Portraits Contributors Buffy Mac G. Cleveland Kilgore Tildon Dunn

So pull up a chair and let’s get started. What would September be without bluegrass? The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) returns to the 919 for it’s fourth straight year. 919 Magazine has been a proud sponsor and supporter for this incredible week of music for the past three years, and we are so excited to share all the details with you beginning on Page 62. Head over to Page 60 and meet Dallas Bonavita from Note in the Pocket. I first met Dallas back in 2012 and we shared a story on her wonderful organization. Well, she is back and, boy, has this wonderful group grown! Are you shopping local this November?

What Happens When You Support Local Businesses?

Students are back in school and the holidays are just around the corner. So 919 Magazine provides some information on the importance of local small businesses to our communities. Supporting independent businesses and shopping locally creates jobs, helps schools, gives health and character to the community. And local business owners enthusiastically support the community, schools and local organizations and events.

By contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local. The first event was sponsored by American Express, and now is promoted nationwide. This year, the special day devoted to celebrating and promoting small local businesses is Saturday, Nov. 26.

TOTALLY COMMITTED Inspired North Raleigh Student Hopes to Become A Civil Rights Attorney, Improve People’s Lives by TILDON DUNN 919 Magazine Writer

North Raleigh high school senior Langdon Ogburn has some lofty and selfless goals for his future – and he appears well on his way to reaching them. “My goal has always been to one day help improve as many people’s lives as I possibly can, and I think the way I will be able to do that is by becoming a civil rights lawyer,” said Langdon, who lives in the Quail Hollow neighborhood with parents Rudy and Deb Ogburn, younger sister Reagan and older brother David – who attends Elon University. Rudy Ogburn has little doubt his son will be successful. “When Langdon takes on a new interest, project or responsibility, he gives it everything he has,” said Rudy, himself an attorney specializing in estate planning. “He is totally committed 48

Langdon is looking at several colleges in North Carolina and the Washington DC area, to study economics and philosophy on a prelaw track. Then, inspired by Robert F. Kennedy, make the move into law and public service. “The more I learn about him the more I understand what it means to truly serve one’s country. It’s incredible to live in a nation where so much good can be accomplished through the court system,” he said. “Of course our legal system isn’t perfect, but it can be a very useful vector in enacting real change – and I hope to one day be a part of it.”

Raleigh Parks Planning Boo Bash, Zombie Survival Course

Kicks 4 Kids Family Day Funds Note in the Pocket

Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources plans two unique Halloweenthemed events in North Raleigh this fall – one a more traditional activity, and the other definitely different from the norm. On Friday, Oct. 28, Raleigh community centers throughout North Raleigh and Brier Creek combine resources for the annual Halloween Boo Bash at the Abbotts Creek Community Center at 9950 Durant Road. Scheduled for 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. for youths age 10 and younger, the free event features decorated vehicles for trunkor-treating, making a scarey craft, games, a “Spooky Bus” (both scarey and non-scarey versions available), and a ghost story area. All activities are free, and participants are encouraged to wear costumes. Then, on Monday, Oct. 31, a Zombie Survival Course is planned at Durant Nature Park in North Raleigh. A hands-on outdoor activity – which involves instruction on tactics, sheltering, and other needs to survive zombie attacks – is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Designed for youths age 10 to 15, a $50 fee applies and advance registration is requested. Durant Nature Park is located at 8305 Camp Durant Road in North Raleigh.

Ready for a fun late summer morning? Kicks 4 Kids Family Day is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Credit Suisse campus in Research Triangle Park. A fundraiser for Note in the Pocket, which works to provide clothing to the needy children of Wake County “with dignity and love,” the event includes a Kids Fun Run at 9 a.m. and a Family Walk at 10 a.m. “Note in the Pocket provides clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County,” said Dallas Bonavita, Executive Director of the non-profitorganization. “We believe it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school. Money raised from the Kicks for Kids Family Day helps us fulfill our mission.” In addition to the walk and run, the event features fun characters, a youth obstacle course, a silent auction, an opportunity to win a Caribbean cruise, and much more. Participants are encouraged to bring new socks and new or gently used shoes as a donation. Registration fees for the Family Fun Walk for adults is $10 (and free for children). Registration for the Kids Fun Run is $10, and prizes will be awarded following the race.

A DESIRE TO HELP OTHERS …ESPECIALLY CHILDREN Note in the Pocket Wants Impoverished Students to Be Confident, Ready to Learn Most 919 parents know just how difficult it is to keep growing children in clothes that fit and aren’t worn out. Now imagine keeping the kids clothed if no money was available. It’s tough – and that’s where Note in the Pocket comes in. A nonprofit organization started in 2005 in North Raleigh, Note in the Pocket provides clothing to impoverished and homeless schoolchildren in Wake County throughout the year. “There are over 53,000 students in Wake County who live below the national poverty line,” said Executive Director Dallas Bonavita. “In 2015, Note in the Pocket provided clothes to 2,500 children and over 500 adults.” Bonavita said Note in the Pocket was created when one family decided to “do something” for local children suffering the effects of poverty, beginning with providing coats for a class of kindergartners. “Note in the Pocket believes it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school,” Bonavita said. “And over the years, the organization has grown into a county-wide agency providing mini-wardrobes of school-appropriate clothes and shoes to students of all ages.” Like most nonprofits, Note in the Pocket is funded with grants, fundraising events, and individual and corporate support. “The number of children we are able to help is directly related to the amount of funds we are able to raise, so community support is crucial to the success of our program,” Bonavita explained. “We have three consistently ongoing needs: A steady supply of seasonably appropriate clothes and shoes that pre-K through high school students would want to wear to school; volunteer manpower; and the financial support needed to keep up with the growing number of requests,” she said. To assist in the organization’s effort, Bonavita encouraged local residents to donate new or gently used school clothes 60

and shoes, make a cash donation to the organization, join the staff of volunteers, or attend one of several special events to support the group’s efforts. “We have lots of exciting events going on regularly. Our next big event is our Kicks for Kids Family Fun Day hosted by Credit Suisse in Morrisville at 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10,” Bonavita said. “There will be a Kids Fun Run and a youth obstacle course; and families and individuals will walk the perimeter of the campus to collectively take a step to represent the thousands of children in Wake County living below the national poverty line. Everyone is encouraged to bring a pair of tennis shoes to donate.” Note in the Pocket’s biggest fundraising event is the fun Socks and Undie 5K Rundie and Kids Fun Run, scheduled for April 2017. In addition to encouraging individuals to donate and volunteer, Bonavita encouraged local business and organizations to get involved. “We had a few partners who supported us in the early days before anyone really knew what we were doing, and they really had unquestioning faith in our work. It was and still is amazing!” she said. “And we welcome new businesses and organizations to host clothing or shoe collections, volunteer as a group, or host a fundraising event for us so that we may reach more local children. Beginning next year, we will be implementing a new mobile volunteer program that will allow us to bring events to a business location.” A frequent question is how Note in the Pocket deter919 Magazine

mines who needs its support. “Ours is a referral based program; families do not contact us directly or come to our center to receive clothing assistance,” Bonavita noted. “The families and children we serve are either already working with one of our local agency partners or are referred through a school social worker. We then package the needed clothing and deliver to the school or agency that made the request.” Bonavita paraphrases Mother Teresa in explaining Note in the Pocket’s ongoing humanitarian efforts. “We cannot do great things, but we can do small things with great love,” she said. “That is at the heart of our mission. Our desire to help others, especially children, and ensure they arrive at school feeling comfortable and confident, dressed with dignity and love and ready to learn.” For more information on Note in the Pocket, call 919-7149403 or visit noteinthepocket.org.

THE 919 WELCOMES WORLD OF BLUEGRASS

The Largest Urban Bluegrass Festival in the World Bluegrass Nation Gathers In North Carolina for Annual IBMA Bluegrass Festival by G. CLEVELAND KILGORE 919 Magazine Writer

Bluegrass Nation gathers again this fall in North Carolina. The International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass – including the Wide Open Bluegrass Weekend Festival – is Sept. 27 through Oct. 1 in downtown Raleigh. And, weather permitting, it will be massive. More than 180,000 people attended the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass in Raleigh in 2014 – roughly 30,000 more than 2013 in Raleigh, and significantly larger than the less than 14,000 at the 2013 event in Nashville prior to the move to North Carolina.

7:30 PM The International Bluegrass Music Awards Show is the biggest night on the bluegrass calendar.  The awards at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts
on Sept. 29 recognize outstanding achievement and pioneering efforts in the genre as determined by professionals in the bluegrass music industry. In addition to the presentation of the industry’s top annual awards, a variety of live music performances are planned.

Last year’s crowds were smaller, as tropical weather drenched the venue and forced all activities indoors – but attendees still enjoyed great music and a variety of events and activities. While some events are ticketed, most of the activities during the course of the week are free and open to the public. For ticket to various events or for more information visit ibma.org or wideopenbluegrass.com. Here is a summary of events and activities associated with the World of Bluegrass.

Something for Everyone Theatre in the Park’s Variety Of Live Performances Attracts Enthusiastic Crowds and Loyal Supporters Theatre In The Park — located at the 250-seat indoor facility at the northern end of Raleigh’s scenic Pullen Park — strives to involve the community in the creation and development of live theatre, and to nurture a general appreciation and respect for the arts. And its staff reflects that ideal. “We are a family. We are close. We work together, we play together, and we have a good time,” said Brent Simpson, the theatre’s Managing Director. “We also treat our patrons as our family, and invite everyone to join our family by becoming a season member, single ticket buyer or just joining our mailing list. We really do offer something for everyone!” Led by Artistic and Executive Director Ira David Wood III, Theatre in the Park has a busy fall and holiday performance lineup – and an exciting complete 2016-2017 schedule. Three plays in repertory – followed by a special presentation by Ira David Wood III of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” just in time for Halloween – are first up (see full details on these shows on Page 89 of this issue of 919 Magazine). Then, in December, Wood’s beloved musical comedy “A Christmas Carol” celebrates its 42nd Anniversary. Performed annually since 1974, it was named one of the “Top 20 Events in the Southeast” and enjoyed critically acclaimed tours in England and France. Performances are planned at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh Dec. 7-11 and the Durham Performing Arts Center Dec. 15-18.

A fast-growing, diverse community. A desire among residents for new and expanded amenities. A team of dedicated professionals working to provide for the population. Welcome to the Town of Morrisville, particularly as seen through the spectrum of the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department “We strive to enrich the Morrisville community by providing a variety of quality recreation experiences and facilities that provide a better quality of life for the citizens,” said Jerry Allen, Town of Morrisville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Director. “We are working to have parks and greenways located throughout the town to provide con919 Magazine

at 998 Parkside Valley Drive – including a picnic shelter, playground and paved walking trail. “Because the usable space on the site is only about two acres, we looked for ways to reduce the space needed for storm water treatment by trying some environmentally friendly concepts,” Allen said. “Most of the rain water from the picnic shelter roof is being held in a 3,000-gallon tank, or cistern – which is then used to irrigate the plant beds, helps conserve treated drinking water, lowers the water bill and reduces erosion.” The parking lot has a permeable surface that allows rain to filter through and be held in a deep stone layer underneath, but perhaps the most unique environmental feature of the site is the playground. Like the parking lot, the surface is permeable and allows water to pass into a stone layer underneath where it is also released a controlled rate – the first time these kind of features have been included in a Morrisville park. “The park has several other features for use by the community, including the playground with an open area for toddlers, a play unit designed for 2-5 year olds, and a larger unit designed for 5-12 year olds,” Allen said. “The picnic shelter includes restrooms and eight picnic tables, plus two more tables outside the shelter. There is also a walking track built around a large open playfield and plenty of benches where you can sit and read or just relax and unwind.” This is Allen’s world, and where he thrives. “I have also always enjoyed meeting and helping people. This profession allows me to serve the local community by helping people enjoy their lives more,” he said. “With the variety of duties involving capital projects, budget management, working with so many great people, and all the other

a concrete walking track around the field. This field is a unique feature because it was built to serve as a regulation size cricket field – the first public regulation cricket field built in North Carolina and one of only a handful in the southeastern United States. Another ongoing project is the Crabtree-Hatcher Creek Greenway, the longest single Greenway project the town will likely ever build, according to Allen. This 2.5-mile greenway will run from Evans Road to Davis Drive and connect thousands of people to parks, shopping centers and several residential communities. At Evans Road the trail will connect to the Cary Greenway system and that will allow for connection to Lake Crabtree and Umstead State Park. The designs process is complete and we are expecting bids for construction in September. The long term plans for Crabtree Creek Nature Park call for expanding the site to include walking trails, a playground, a picnic shelter and other 72

facilities. The details of the site will be worked out in future planning efforts once funding is available for construction. Allen indicated that there are several conceptual projects in the long range capital improvement plan that would improve current Morrisville parks. “Among those is another phase at Morrisville Community Park that would include more walking trails and tennis courts,” said Allen. “We are also still looking at options for the renovation or reconstruction of the Morrisville Aquatics and Fitness Center, and awaiting word on of grant applications.” Allen attributes the success of his department to the hard work of a great staff and support from the Town of Morrisville. “I know the hard work the staff does and greatly appreciate their efforts,” he said. “While I may be the department director, I see myself as part of a team that works for the citizens to find ways to improve our community.“

Theatre in the Park Fall Events Include Caught Up in I-540 Traffic? ‘Dracula’ and Three Plays in Repertory Relief Project on the Way Raleigh’s Theatre in the Park’s 2016 Mainstage Season continues in September with three plays in repertory – followed by a special presentation by Ira David Wood III of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” just in time for Halloween. The three plays in repertory include: “True West” by Sam Shepard (Sept. 8-11) This American classic explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape. Sons of a desert-dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script. Austin, the achiever, is working on a script he has sold to producer Sal Kimmer when Lee, a demented petty thief, drops in. He pitches his own idea for a movie to Kimmer, who then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and write Lee’s trashy Western tale. “Almost Maine” by John Cariani (Sept. 15-18) On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, ME. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream. “Southern Baptist Sissies” by Del Shores (Sept. 22-25) Storyteller Mark Lee Fuller tries to create a world of love and acceptance in the church and clubs of Dallas, TX, while desperately trying to find a place to put his own pain and rage. The world Mark creates also includes two older barflies, Peanut and Odette, whose banter takes the audience from hysterical laughter to tragedy and tears. With a theme of religion clashing with sexuality, the play opened to rave reviews in Los Angeles during its original run in 2000 and became the most awarded play of the year. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 8-10, 15-17, and 22-24 and 3 p.m. on Sept. 11, 18, and 25. Tickets are $24 for adults, $18 for seniors, students and military, and $16 for groups of 10 or more. “Dracula” (Oct. 6-9, 13-16) Ira David Wood IV stars in a gothic tale of the world’s most famous vampire, “Dracula” is an adaption of Bram Stoker’s gothic tale of the world’s most famous vampire. Shows are 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 6-8 and Oct. 13-15, and 3 p.m. on Oct. 9 and Oct. 10. Adult tickets are $22, and $15 for seniors, students and military personnel. Because last year’s “Dracula” productionss were sold out – and the recent sell-out success of the theatre’s production of “Hair” – the staff strongly recommends advance reservations. Tickets are available at 919-831-6058 or theatreinthepark.com. Theatre in the Park is located at Pullen Park, 107 Pullen Road, Raleigh.

Morning commuters familiar with the clogged westbound traffic lanes on I-540 in North Raleigh can look forward to some relief early next year. North Carolina Department of Transportation crews will begin construction to install traffic signals on four on-ramps by early 2017, designed to stagger motorists entering the highway from Falls of Neuse Road, Six Forks Road, Creedmoor Road and Leesville Road. These are the first on-ramp signals planned for installation in North Carolina, though similar systems are in place in other metropolitan areas in the U.S. – utilizing the technology to effectively keep traffic moving during rush hour. NCDOT considers the four new stop-and-go ramp meters on I-540 as a “pilot sites”, potentially leading to additional installations in the state. For more information, visit ncdot.gov.

CASL Boys Soccer Team Wins USYS National Championship Capital Area Soccer League ‘02 Academy Juniors boys soccer team defeated Strikers FC Chingirian 2-1 in July to mark CASL’s 3rd U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship.

TASTY AUTUMN RECIPES This is the Season for Easy Preparation And Some Wonderful Aromas and Tastes by SUZY BETH SARVER Special to 919 Magazine

Nothing feels more like autumn than having a slight chill in the air, that crunch under your feet from fallen leaves, and a wonderful aroma permeating out of your kitchen on a cozy Sunday afternoon. Here are some of my all-time favorite recipes perfect for your next family dinner, tailgate, holiday get-together or quick weeknight meal. All have been long-treasured and tested on my family and friends, from my kitchen to yours- Buon Appetito (SB)

LIP SMACK’N POT ROAST Starting with a classic in our home: This one-dish masterpiece is so popular around here and – although the ingredients may sound a little bit overkill – the end result is impressive. I have yet to find this exact recipe anywhere; it’s been tested over and over again and well perfected. Work with a decent large pan, something with a tight fitting lid that can go from stovetop to oven. Prep time: Oven time:

20 min 2 hr, 45 min

Ingredients 1 (4-5) lb boneless chuck roast 4 cloves garlic, sliced thin ½ tsp salt ½ tsp black pepper ¼ cup all purpose flour 1 stick butter 1 large sweet yellow onion, sliced into rings 1 cup dry red wine 1 8-oz can tomato sauce 1 tsp prepared horseradish 1 tsp Dijon mustard 1 bay leaf 8 Idaho potatoes, peeled and quartered 6 carrots, peeled and quartered 4 stalks celery, cut into 2-inch pieces 1 can golden mushroom soup 90

919 Magazine

Preparation Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in pan over medium heat, adding onion rings. While onions are cooking, make slits in top of roast, stuff with garlic, rub with salt and pepper and dredge in flour; then set aside for a moment. Increase temperature to medium high and continue to cook onions for roughly 10 min. or until glazed over and translucent. Add roast to pan with onions, browning on all sides. Just after brown, add next five ingredients to pan, stir well and bring to a slight boil. Turn off stove, adding potatoes, carrots and celery – and cover pan with lid and transfer to oven. Roast covered at 350 degrees for two hours; then uncover, stir, re-cover, reduce oven to 300 degrees, and cook another 45 min. Remove from oven, cool for 10 min., then transfer roast to serving platter. Using a slotted spoon, place vegetables around roast and add juices from pan as desired. Make sure to serve with a lot of crusty bread for all that lip smackin’ sopping up! (SB) www.919Magazine.com

TACO SOUP

SOUTHERN HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

This is the easy weeknight dinner I promised and is perfect for busy families on the go. My youngest loves this soup so much that it’s been in “regular rotation” in our home from September through February since 2009. If you want a dish loaded with flavor, this one has it. Add tortilla or corn chips on the side and you may have a new favorite on your hands.

About 15 years ago I attended a baby shower and the hostess served this belly-warming, flavorful casserole. What I like most about the dish is its versatility. It can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It pairs nicely with eggs, a glazed honey ham or pork tenderloin. Many of you may be familiar with this dish as it has “southern” in the title. I could not have been more removed from anything southern at the time by living in San Diego, but then again, that is Southern California, right?

Prep time: Cook time:

10 min 15 min

Prep time: Oven time:

Ingredients

Ingredients

1 lb ground beef, browned and drained 1 15 oz can corn 1 15 oz can pinto beans 1 4 oz can fire-roasted tomatoes 1 4 oz can green chilies 1 pkg ranch dressing mix 1 pkg taco seasoning 2 15 oz cans water

Preparation Brown ground beef in large soup kettle, drain fat and return to pan. Dump all cans into pot, including their own liquid; then use one of the empty 15 oz cans to fill twice with water, and add to pot (big mention again right here to NOT drain the cans; I know we all are in the habit of draining, but this recipe calls for you to dump all ingredients together). Stir in seasoning mixes, bring to a boil, reduce to low and simmer 15 min. Top with a dollop of sour cream, and enjoy. (SB)

My Pumpkin Cranberry Bread Here’s a recipe that I created from a few different recipes. It was first baked in my home back in 2001 and traveled with me to Texas for a Thanksgiving dinner. The secret to the success of this moist and flavorful bread is to make it ahead three or four days, storing on the counter-top tightly wrapped. The brandy comes to life and makes this a people pleaser at your holiday table. The recipe easily doubles and the bread freezes well. Prep time: Bake time:

20 min. 60 min

Ingredients 3 cups all purpose flour 1 tbsp, plus 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 2 tsp baking soda 1½ tsp salt 3 cups granulated sugar 1 15 oz can pure pumpkin (not pie filling) 4 large eggs 1 cup vegetable oil ½ cup orange juice 1 cup sweetend cran-raisins 1/3 cup brandy

919 Magazine

10 min 1.5 hr

2 lbs frozen southern hash browns (thawed; cubed, not shredded) 1 cup chopped yellow onion 16 oz sour cream 1 can cream of chicken soup 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese ½ tsp salt ½ tsp white pepper ½ tsp garlic salt ½ cup butter (melted) 2 cups corn flakes

Preparation Mix all ingredients together -- except leave out the hash browns and half of the required butter (use only ¼ cup initially). After ingredients are well mixed, stir in the hash browns and pour into a greased 13” x 9” casserole dish. Spread corn flakes over the top and drizzle remaining butter. Bake uncovered 1.5 hr. Two items worth mentioning: Never cover this dish during bake time, or when resting on the counter top to cool from the oven. If you do, you will have a soggy corn flake topping. I learned the hard way. This dish is strong and likes to breathe with a definite crunchy top – which makes it all the more appealing. If you are transporting to a potluck…this dish will be a big hit. Simply bake earlier in the day, leave room temperature to cool, then cover with foil or lid for travel. Ask your hostess/host to reheat 20 min. at 300 degrees uncovered or bring a hot pad and reheat. (SB)

Preparation Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease and flour two loaf pans. Combine the first four ingredients until well blended. In a separate bowl, combine the next five ingredients and with an electric mixer on low, and beat until just blended. Add the mixing bowl with the pumpkin to your four mixture and hand stir until moistened. Mixture will seem quite runny, which is okay. Fold in the cranberries, barely mix in the brandy, and pour into prepared loaf pans and bake on the center rack 60-65 min. until toothpick tests clean. Cool in pans on wire rack for 10 min. then remove from pans. Recipe makes two full size loaves or five mini loaves. Once again, the secret is to make ahead a day or two for the flavors to come to life. This also makes an excellent hostess gift. (SB)

Raleigh Lands On List of 25 Cities Where Divorce Is

RALEIGH ON TOP

Using 32 data points, Men’s Health magazine recently ranked the best and worst cities in the U.S. for men who want to be “fit and happy” – with Raleigh topping the list. Working for Raleigh when the 100-city list was compiled were several factors, such as 100 miles of cycling, walking and running trails and the 30,000 sq. ft. year-round North Carolina State Farmers Market. Other cities in the top 10 were San Jose, CA; Madison, WI; Anaheim, CA; Burlington, VT; Plano, TX; Austin, TX; Charlotte; San Diego; and Aurora, CO. Charleston, WV, and Detroit were at the bottom of the rankings. SOURCE: Men’s Health magazine
