Zebulon—just 25 minutes from downtown Raleigh—is a vibrant, welcoming community packed with tons of activities ranging from sporting events to art galleries. Baseball lovers can root for the home team and catch a classic minor-league baseball game with the Single-A Carolina Mudcats throughout the spring and summer at Five County Stadium.
Zebulon’s core business district is surrounded by historic residential neighborhoods that consist of homes built in the Victorian, Craftsman and Colonial Revival styles. The historic downtown is a must-see, with tours available of the gorgeous Zebulon Town Hall, a 100-year-old building hosting the work of local artists, and the family-owned Whitley Furniture Galleries, a furniture gallery that draws shoppers from all over the state.
Zebulon also offers a wide range of activities across its parks, including Zebulon Community Park and Whitley Park. Those looking to get out on the fairways can visit Zebulon Country Club or try their hand at disc golf in Zebulon Community Park. After time outdoors, hungry and thirsty visitors can head to family-owned McLean’s Ole Time Cafe. Or stop by Olde Raleigh Distillery, Lick Like Spirits, Mythic Brewing, EnoNeo or The Fall Line. Finding fun and satisfying things to enjoy in Zebulon is a joy, giving first-time visitors a multitude of reasons to return.
