Downtown Raleigh offers a vibrant, friendly community within walking distance to some of the best places this city has to offer. While new neighborhood gems are popping up all the time, families will still appreciate the peaceful neighborhood charm. It’s urban living, southern style.
With everything to do and see downtown, there is something for everyone here. Take a look at some of the highlights:
Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts: Downtown Raleigh is littered with fabulous independent studios, galleries, art spaces, and theatres – and this gorgeous performing arts center is very close to our heart. Here, patrons can go to the opera or attend the ballet, listen to bluegrass or a symphony orchestra. Downtown residents have it all at their fingertips every night of the week!
Bida Manda: Foodies will love being within walking distance to Bida Manda, named the best restaurant in the state by Business Insider. The restaurant offers Laotian fare in a welcoming and comforting atmosphere. Unfamiliar with this style of cooking? All the more reason to visit!
Pullen Park: Historic Pullen Park is the oldest park in North Carolina. Spanning 66 acres, it offers greenways and trails, playgrounds, an aquatic center – and even an amusement park. Spend a lazy weekend here or plan a party at the community center.
Marbles Kids Museum: The motto at Marbles is that play matters – and the museum offers plenty of opportunity to do it. This museum is the best destination for hands-on exploration that turns young minds on to discovery and creativity. Hot tip: residents go so often, they can spring for a membership and get free entry.
Finds: Finds is a vintage furniture store that offers an eclectic array of items for your new home. Downtown Raleigh residents love popping in here regularly to see what new items have turned up. They even specialize in customization – definitely check out their lacquered and reupholstered pieces.
