Are you ready to start 2017 off on the right foot? The holiday hustle and bustle is winding down, but that doesn’t mean life isn’t still interesting and fun in our area. Here are some upcoming events near Bradford that will make the beginning of the New Year an amazing experience!
On January 8 at 10:00 a.m., head to WakeMed Soccer Park for the 2017 Hot Chocolate Run & SPCA Doggie Dash. This run, which includes a 5K, 10K and 1-mile race, collects money for the Wake County SCPA. No matter which length you run, if you finish you will be rewarded with an unlimited amount of hot chocolate in a collectible mug.
Do you want to experience a unique cultural tradition? Head to the Town Hall Campus on January 7 at 1 for the Three Kings Day Parade. This parade signals the end of the Christmas season, a time when the “Three Kings” bring presents to children, and it is an important part of Latino cultures. Come to enjoy the food, dancing and parade paraphernalia of the Latino communities in Cary.
If you missed out on a white Christmas this year, head to Bond Park on January 27 and 28 for Winter Wonderland. The park will pump snow all over the hill across from the Bond Park Community Center, and you can grab a snow tube and go flying down the hill. Stock up on winter wear now so that you are prepared when the hill gets covered in freshly made snow!
If the weather outside is just a little too cool for you, head indoors in The Cary Theater to enjoy showings of classic and modern films for just a few dollars. Several movies are scheduled for the month of January, including Notes on Blindness, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Harry and the Snowman and Rio, among others. Check the schedule and pick a movie you’ve been wanting to see. It’s a perfect way to spend a chilly winter afternoon while still enjoying all of the offerings of Cary.
As you can see, there’s plenty to see and do in Cary, NC in the first part of the year. Make your plans now to enjoy these festivities!
Not all New Year’s resolutions are created equal. And let’s be honest, most of them are quickly abandoned by mid-January. In the mood for a change in 2016, but want something a little easier and a little more inspiring? We’ve got you covered! Check out these awesome no-fail New Year’s resolution ideas from the team at Bradford Luxury Apartments:
GET (A LITTLE) ACTIVE
Aspirations for a healthier 2016 don’t have to fizzle out on January 5th after your second visit to the ever-so-packed gym. Just add in a little more easy activity – stretch your legs with a brisk walk outside, stroll around the property and check out some of the amenities you never use, or opt for the stairs at work or home a few times every week. Meander over to the Bradford Shops! If you need accountability, grab a pedometer or a FitBit to track your steps. It doesn’t have to be a big change – little bits add up over time, and more activity will make for a physically and mentally healthier new year.
GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Do one new thing every week (the more out of your comfort zone, the better). It doesn’t have to be anything big. Take cookies to the neighbor you’ve never spoken to. Explore a new area. Take up a new hobby you’ve always wanted to do but never had time to. Practice an old instrument, or take up a new one! Again, nothing major or earth-shattering. Just one thing each week – 5 minutes or more. How might that change your 2016?
Not all the time, not to everyone. Just sometimes, and consciously. Because sometimes, no is needed.
USE THOSE AMENITIES!
You chose Bradford for a reason – when you took your first tour, we can imagine there was something that really got your blood pumping (Golf simulator! Poolside cabanas! Pet spa! Indoor resistance pool! The list goes on…) that you just haven’t quite gotten a chance to use much, or at all yet. That’s okay! Life can get in the way sometimes, but make the most of your time at Bradford Luxury Apartments and Townhomes by resolving to use those amenities you’ve always wanted to. And who knows – maybe while you’re at it, you’ll hit it off with a great neighbor from the 2nd floor who shares the same interest?
Happy and healthy 2016 to you and yours from Bradford Luxury Apartments and Townhomes!
