Raleigh, North Carolina, is a small city with a big footprint. Located in the famed Research Triangle (a hub of education and innovation that also includes Durham and Chapel Hill), Carolina’s capital city is home to numerous James Beard-nominated chefs, award-winning musicians, architectural marvels and more.

It’s easy to feel like a local in this charming Southern town and in nearby Durham. Nestled among looming oaks is a vibrant, thriving community of artists and creators building a food-forward, artisan-centric region rooted in Southern hospitality. Just two hours from the beach and four hours from the mountains, Raleigh and Durham offer everything you need for a weekend getaway.
