Raleigh, North Carolina, is home to some of the country’s most exciting restaurants—and with this package, you and five guests will get to experience three of the hottest ones. Your home base for two nights will be the Umstead Hotel and Spa, a Forbes Travel Guide 5-Star Award hotel and spa. The entire package includes:

  • Three rooms for 6 six guests, including breakfast
  • Dinner at Bida Manda Laotian Restaurant, with wine and cocktail pairing. Bida Manda is one of the few Laotian restaurants in the country, and was named Best Restaurant in North Carolina by Business Insider. For the last four years it’s been one of OpenTable’s 100 Best Restaurants in America.
