  • Very nice park, the mill is very interesting, the visitor has a small and interesting museum, The volunteers are very friendly and helpful. The trail around the pond is very nice and easy to walk. Very good place for a family outing .
  • The volunteers are wonderful. They are knowledgeable, friendly, and so kind to give their time for such a worthwhile cause. Try to make it to one of the working tours. A great place to spend the afternoon.
  • Great place to go and have a nice walk. The mill is beautiful, and you can take tours inside if you pay. The museum is also very interesting and educational.
  • Neat little park. It does not take long to walk around the lake. Plenty of picnic tables. I did not get a chance to go into the mill.
  • A beautiful and relaxing park that offers tranquil scenery and historic value.

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.
