Downtown Raleigh - Urban Living Trend Flourishes


Downtown Raleigh - Urban Living Trend Flourishes

Restaurants and Nightlife – Housing within Walking Distance

If you haven't been to downtown Raleigh lately you'll be pleasantly surprised with all the great restaurants, shopping, clubs and more that downtown Raleigh has to offer. With so many new housing options in downtown Raleigh, the City has become more than just a place to work. 

Like many downtown areas across the country, Raleigh also saw the mass migration to the suburbs that changed the downtown Raleigh landscape over the years.  For some time the downtown Raleigh area served only as a place of business for government offices and a few companies.  Nightlife was non existent.

Now the trend for urbanization in many areas has brought a new life to downtown Raleigh. Many new companies like Red Hat and Citrix are bringing new jobs to the area and along with these new jobs comes a need for restaurants and other urban living conveniences.  Check out downtown Raleigh's WalkScore!

There’s a vibrant art scene in downtown Raleigh. If you have not been to First Friday Gallery Walk yet it's a must do! Grab a bite to eat at one of the many fabulous restaurants and tour Galleries, listen to great music, see street performers and mingle with your friends as you stroll up and down the streets of downtown Raleigh.
