Reading Time: 2 minutes

Offering a balance of Southern charm and a culture all its own—Raleigh, North Carolina has recently made a name for itself as one of America’s favorite cities. With a growing culinary scene, top tier schools, and enticing attractions, there’s plenty to eat, see, and do in North Carolina’s capital city.


chicken and waffles

The South is known as a comfort food haven—where the cuisine warms both belly and soul. Raleigh may not be deep in the south, but its latitude does not detract from its flavor. This is best experienced at Beasley’s Chicken + Honey, where the name says it all. The menu centers on the indulgent pairing of fried chicken and honey, where a crispy and salty exterior is complemented with a satisfyingly sweet glaze. This uniquely southern combo can be enjoyed in a variety of ways— à la chicken and waffles, chicken and biscuits, via sandwich, or simply fried and seasoned. The homestyle haven offers tempting sides including crispy cheese grit fries, roasted poblano pimento cheese, and fried bologna.

Raleigh is teeming with museums—showcasing art, history, and cultural artifacts. The first on your priority list should be the North Carolina Museum of Art that offers 5,000 years of artistic work, an amphitheater, and large-scale outdoor installations. If you’re more of a nature buff, a visit to Pullen Park should be on your itinerary. This 66-acre green space is home to a carousel, vintage train, and paddle boating.


playing at an arcade

Treat yourself to an evening of satisfying libations and nostalgia at Boxcar Bar + Arcade. This local watering hole combines the grown-up feel of a bar with the playful elements of a vintage arcade.
