PLACES TO GO : Rock Hunt

Have you spotted any painted rocks around Raleigh and wondered what they’re for? 919 Rocks is a fun new outdoor trend moving across the Triangle. If you want to get involved, the concept is easy! Paint a rock, hide a rock, and spread the joy of art and community for everyone. When you find a rock you can either keep it or hide it again for someone else to find! Some rocks act like coupons when you bring them to the store that hid them. We’ve spotted rocks everywhere from parks to cemeteries and hospitals, so keep your eyes peeled and happy hunting!
