Plan a Trip to Raleigh, N.C.

A visit to Raleigh is more than a trip to a blossoming Southern metropolis—you'll feel enriched and energized the instant you're greeted by its smart, savvy locals. Raleigh's bright minds head top-tier technology, education and life science institutions; its artists create a bevy of cultural and culinary touchstones; and its storytellers proudly carry on the collective heritage of a rich, historic capital city.  

During uncertain times, travel remains vital to our physical and mental health, and the backbone of our hospitality community that can't wait to see you again. To that end, many area restaurants and hotels in the Raleigh area have been certified through the Count On Me NC program, which teaches hospitality businesses how to ensure the best and safest practices when serving guests.

Make no mistake, you're still invited to explore our prettiest parks, taste our most delicious dishes and travel our greenest greenways, all while receiving the warmest of welcomes.
