Raleigh, North Carolina Vacation Rentals

About Raleigh, North Carolina

Did you know that Raleigh is the second city to be designated as the capital of North Carolina? In 1743 the city of New Bern was established as the capital and remained so until 1788 when the British Forces attacked with a vengeance. Realizing that the coastal areas were practically indefensible, the state government was relocated to Raleigh. In 1792, Raleigh became the county as well as the state capital and was incorporated in that same year.

Named after Sir Walter Raleigh, the city’s location was chosen in part because of the central location within the state and because it was near Hunter’s Tavern, a gathering place frequented by the legislators. Believe it or not!  Raleigh was planned and built specifically to function as the state capital. Today it’s difficult to imagine that Raleigh was laid out in a neatly platted grid system. The slow but steady growth over the decades has blurred the concise formations, but there is still a pattern that can be detected.

If you are a history buff, the city and surrounding area has an abundance of monuments, markers, antebellum homes, government buildings and antique retail outlets in the downtown area to keep you thoroughly entertained. We have professional and collegiate sports ranging from the Carolina Hurricanes, a professional hockey team that won the Stanley Cup to North Carolina State University, a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

You can step back in time with a visit to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. There is an exhibition of dinosaurs that are super sized. The many shopping centers, malls, and restaurants  are sure to satisfy any want or need that comes to mind.  Motels, hotels or bed and breakfast lodging are in abundance. Raleigh has anything and everything you could possibly want to do, see or visit which is why it makes such a great vacation destination.

Come to Raleigh the next time you’re thinking about taking a break.  We look forward to having you visit.
