Discover Raleigh, the City of Oaks
Fueled by the Best Comfort Food Menu!
Raleigh is known as the “City of Oaks” for the many oak trees lining the streets in the heart of the city. We’re also known as a “city in a park” with more than 10,000 acres of beautiful parks and green spaces. We’re home to family-friendly museums and activities, a lively music scene (Hopscotch is not to be missed!) and we join Durham and Chapel Hill as part of the Research Triangle Park, the largest high-tech R&D center in the U.S.!
Things to do in Raleigh:
- North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences
- North Carolina Museum of Art
- RBC Center – Home of the Carolina Hurricanes
- Neuse River Greenway Trail
- Durant Nature Preserve
- Pullen Park
- Carolina Hurricanes game
Before or after you hit the museums, malls, trails and parks, fuel up at Metro Diner. In fact, let’s talk more about that Fried Chicken and Waffles we mentioned earlier. It’s our most popular dish for a reason (and even gets its own national holiday!) – an entire half a fried chicken, plus a giant Belgian waffle topped with sweet strawberry butter. Drizzle this abundance with our sweet, spicy sauce and make yourself completely at home. Pro tip – wear your comfy pants. 😉
