Raleigh is the capitol of North Carolina and home of the Carolina Hurricanes. In 2006, Raleigh began holding some of its' downtown festivals on the newly redeveloped Fayetteville St, which the city paid millions to renovate. One of the events was the Raleigh Bikefest. Another very large festival in Raleigh is the North Carolina State Fair, held at the NC State Fairgrounds, which you can see on the map. There are many new hotels being built and changing the Raleigh skyline. As the capitol of the state, there tends to be more state employment here. The largest industrial area in the state is located near the Raleigh-Durham Airport, at the NC Research Triangle Park, NC RTP.
North Raleigh, Durham, Cary, and Morrisville, experienced major population boons in the 1990's. In the last couple of years, developers ran out of land in those areas, and are now turning small towns into boontowns in Wake Forest, Knightdale, and Apex.
Such growth is not without its' cost. Traffic congestion is pitiful, and there are some areas to avoid: Route 1 north of I-540 is terrible. Near NC RTP, avoid Route 40 near Davis Drive. Another tip is to choose a hotel that is located closest to the places you plan to visit. We hope the hotel maps help you find the nearest and nicest hotel. Enjoy your visit to Raleigh NC!
