CARY, N.C. — These days, when we go out and about, my family likes to pair a couple of socially distanced activities together. So we'll pick up lunch from La Farm in Cary and take it over to Bond Park to eat and hang out for a bit. Or we'll walk through Joyner Park in Wake Forest and then head over to Lumpy's Ice Cream for a treat. (And, yes, most of our activities these days involve food and physical activity.)
Along those lines, I wanted to share some details about a one-stop shop that has several family-friendly activities — Waverly Place in Cary. The shopping center is at Kildaire Farm and Tryon roads and also is home to a Whole Foods.

Here's what you can do right now at Waverly Place:

  • Paint a custom pottery piece at Color Me Mine Cary. The studio is open with limited capacity or you can take advantage of to-go kits and curbside pick-up if you're not ready to go inside just yet.
  • Check out Contender eSports, which opened last year at the shopping center. It's a state-of-the-art gaming center with high-end PCs, Xboxes and Nintendo Switches. It hosts workshops and youth teams.
  • Pick up that treat at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, which offers store-made caramel apples, candy apples, fudge, dipped fruits, truffles and other treats.
  • Play at Waverly Place's own playground, which offers play areas for different age ranges. Be sure to practice social distancing and wear a mask when social distancing is not possible while you're there.

Waverly Place also is very close to several great parks and a preserve. They are Kids Together Playground at Marla Dorrel Park, Ritter Park and Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve.
