By ‘stroll,’ I mean stroll. I don’t mean hike, or walk with a purpose – I use ‘stroll’ in the sense of walking the way you’d drive on a lazy Sunday afternoon through the gorgeous side streets in Myers Park: relaxed and with no destination in mind.
And there’s literally no better time to do it. The sun is out and we’re all in flip flops relishing (what must be) record temperatures for the month of March.
I’ve gathered the five best places to do just that and sorted them by length to give you an idea of how long you can spend strolling each one.
Get out and stroll, people.
