Downtown Raleigh

Full of Arts, Entertainment, and Nightlife
Downtown Raleigh is the city's source of culture, entertainment, and nightlife. The area offers plenty of bars and restaurants and is also home to North Carolina State University. It's one of the three cities in The Triangle, which also includes Chapel Hill and Durham, so there's also a lot happening in nearby areas.

Popular spots include Fox Liquor Bar, Slims Downtown Distillery, and Beasley's Chicken + Honey. As with most cities in the south, the people are always friendly and the pace is slower so you can easily find time to unwind and relax.
