Welcome to the City of Oaks

Skyscrapers cluster around shops and restaurants downtown. Historic 19th- and 20th-century neighborhoods nestle inside the Beltline. And all throughout the city, cute suburban neighborhoods peek out of thick groves of pine and oak trees. Raleigh might be a large city, but it's so diverse and unique that it feels more like a small town.

As North Carolina's capital, Raleigh has it all: cool museums, bustling bars and breweries, miles of trails, state-of-the-art entertainment venues, you name it. You'll also find plenty of oak trees sprinkled throughout the area, which is why Raleigh's nickname is the "City of Oaks." If you're searching for homes in this area, we have you covered!

North Carolina's Favorite Museum

People can't get enough of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences downtown — that's the one with the gigantic globe out front. Popular with kids and adults alike, this museum was the #1 pick on Carolina Publishing Associates' list of the Top NC Tourist Attractions in 2016.

A Peek Into the Past

While Raleigh is home to dozens of historic homes and landmarks, Yates Mill County Park is one hidden gem worth exploring. This 174-acre preserve features scenic winding trails, a visitor's center, and a 1750s mill that is popular with history buffs and photographers alike.

Sports and Concert Hubs

NC State University sports teams, the biggest names in music, and not-to-miss events converge on Carter-Finley Stadium and its neighbor PNC Arena, two of Raleigh's prominent entertainment venues. PNC Arena is also home to the Carolina Hurricanes NHL team.
