  • Beautiful grounds with numerous historical monuments. Lovely, well-designed square to explore.
  • So much history in these walls! For a North Carolina native, it's definitely something you should do at least once as an adult.
  • I grew up going here. I never get sick of walking our beautiful State Capitol grounds!
  • Nice green area in the middle of downtown raleigh. This is where all the laws happen for the state of North Carolina. Tons of statues adorning the square.
  • Really nice area to walk your dog, the lawn is well cut and it's very neat. Very cool open historic area. I felt very relax, people in the area are very peaceful.

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.
