  • If you are in the area this is worth a drive around just to see all the gravestones and such but wouldn't make a special trip. Beautiful location but be careful driving as roads are very narrow and ha...  more »
  • Since I was a teen, this was always a favorite spot to visit. It is so beautiful- there are some really old graves and it is otherworldly to be there paying your respects. Alot of Raleigh notables res...  more »

  • My Father is in this cemetery along with my Grandparents, and everything has been okay until today. My family planned a remembrance dinner in my Father's honor, so we called the cemetery and checked the Google page hours and both showed it was open until 6pm. I pull up to the main gate at 4:57pm and it's chained shut, now we can't go visit my Father and the head lady there named Robin tells me they close early after the clocks are set back. Not sure why, since it's 5:30pm and the sun is still out...I'm very displeased right now since I drove 45 minutes from Benson and the rest of my family was meeting me there.

Where to stay in Raleigh

Staying downtown provides the most convenient access to Raleigh's leading attractions. You'll find a couple of large, efficient hotels here--they feature a large volume of beds. The area around the North Campus of North Carolina State University lies just west of downtown and features a handful of additional hotels. A cluster of national chain hotels and motels lies in the midtown area north of downtown. There are a couple of bus lines that provide easy access to downtown from here, so this area serves as a suitable option if you cannot find accommodation in the city center. The intersection of I-440 and Route 70 to the northwest of downtown features numerous hotels and motels, but these largely cater to business travelers who require convenient access to both downtown and the airport.
