Nestled about 30 miles southwest of downtown Raleigh, Holly Springs is a refreshing neighboring town that makes up a part of Greater Raleigh. This town started out as a crossroads between fresh springs and holly trees where travelers would stop to rest and take a drink. Today, the old rest stop has become home to many other attractions that make it worth visiting.
One of the area’s most popular brewing companies, Carolina Brewing Company, has made Holly Springs its home, offering tours every Saturday. You can also play some golf at a championship golf course that is larger in size than the entire downtown area. The outdoor fun doesn’t stop there, as the Holly Springs Parks and Recreation Department provides diverse opportunities for a quality leisure experience. Like icing on the cake, the Holly Springs Cultural Center provides year-round events including fun concerts and events for you to enjoy.
If you’re looking for a charming small-town atmosphere where you can kick back and enjoy some outdoor leisure, events and especially a quality brew, then Holly Springs is the Greater Raleigh town for you.
