If the great outdoors is calling, you don’t have to leave Raleigh to answer it. Raleigh is filled with parks and greenway trails, ranging from scenic gardens (think Fred Fletcher Park and the JC Raulston Arboretum) to wide wooded spaces (such as Lake Johnson and William B. Umstead State Park). The City of Raleigh maintains more than 100 miles of greenway trails throughout its Capital Area Greenway system, including the Neuse River Trail, which connects Raleigh hikers with the 1,150-mile Mountains-to-Sea Trail. On the summer days when the water is calling, you can visit nearby Falls Lake or Jordan Lake for swimming, boating, and camping.
There is always something fun to do in Raleigh. Spend a Saturday exploring Fayetteville Street in Downtown Raleigh, which often features music festivals, food trucks, outdoor movies, and parades. Take a tour of the State Capitol or the North Carolina Museum of History for a glimpse of Raleigh’s local and national importance. Experience a fast-paced sporting event at NC State University’s Carter-Finley Stadium or watch the Hurricanes take on their opponents at PNC Arena. Don’t forget to shop at Crabtree Valley Mall, Triangle Town Center, North Hills, or Cameron Village. The list of adventures you can have in Raleigh is endless.
Raleigh residents are proud of where they live. As North Carolina's capital city, Raleigh is home to the state government, prestigious public and private universities, and a thriving job market. A vibrant downtown, rich local culture, top-rated schools, and desirable neighborhoods make this city a top choice among home buyers.
