  • Well preserved old state house. Very interesting place to visit and learn about the local history. The grounds are also nice with nice plants and statues.
  • Well preserved building. Not crowded. Good info about the history of this structure housing our state's Senate & House. Easy walking distance to other museums and other wondwrfullu nerdy venues.
  • Always a fun place to visit. I love being downtown. There is a lot to do and experience.
  • Was interesting to see on July 4th. Especially the large statue in the Center and the library. It really shows the difference in heights of people.
  • Awesome historical site to visit! the statues that surround the grounds are amazing and full of historical fun facts. Our kids loved visiting and would definitely recommend. beautiful grounds and close to all the great eateries in the area.

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.
