Things to do

There are several reasons why Raleigh has been called the "Smithsonian of the South": this district contains at least a couple of them. The free-admission North Carolina Museum of Art is one of the premier visual arts museums in the South, featuring a dramatic gallery building, a world-class collection including more than 30 Rodin sculptures, a center for special touring exhibitions and a 164-acre Museum Park.

Located in the middle of Raleigh West is North Carolina State University’s (NCSU's) main campus; this is the state's largest university, known for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. While on main campus, stop by the Gregg Museum of Art & Design (pictured below), the university's collecting and exhibiting museum with more than 35,000 objects—the museum also makes for a stellar space for offsites! Also, you're just a short walk from popular shopping destinations like Hillsborough St. and Cameron Village. More attractions in walking distance are Raleigh Little Theatre, one of the nation’s longest-running community theatres (1936), and the long-running Theatre In The Park (Ira David Wood III Pullen Park Theatre).

Gregg Museum

A short drive down Hillsborough St., past the NCSU main campus, is the state-of-the-art PNC Arena, which welcomes over 1.5 million guests and plays host to more than 150 events each year—the arena is also the home of the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes. Disney On Ice, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé and other international touring acts bring their biggest shows to the arena. Across the parking lot, you'll find Carter-Finley Stadium, where you can catch NCSU football action.

Adjacent to Carter-Finley Stadium is the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. If you're visiting in mid-Oct., be sure to join the more than one million attendees who visit the North Carolina State Fair, the state’s largest annual event.
