I live in "North Raleigh" has been discussed in the thread - I'm south of 540 but north of 440 along Glenwood
If I were moving here I would try to live inside 440 - I'm a big fan of downtown Raleigh. North Hills area is also really nice, as is Cameron Village area. Cost of living in general is very low, but housing prices are still plenty expensive in the desirable areas.
While you're here I would recommend getting a burger at Chuck's downtown near Wilimington and Martin intersection. Awesome burgers. People love "The Pit" for bbq - I think it's a little over hyped. If you like bourbon, check out Foundation on Fayetteville St downtown
What area of Raleigh are you looking at ? I lived in Raleigh & Cary for 7 years or so...great place to live with mountains and coast near. Tons of hot chicks in NC...close second to Texas imho...also, find yourself a Snoopys and get yourself a slaw dog or slaw burger ...yummers
If visiting Raleigh I'd recommend:
Bars: Hibernian (great pub), Busy Bee/The Hive (great beer selection), Flying Saucer (it's a chain but great beer choices and hot waitresses in school girl unis), Raleigh Times (great spot and great beer, very busy) don't hit the clubs so I wont recommend any.
Restaurants: Lillys (pizza/salads/beer), Porters (has a bit of everything, fantastic food and scene just off NC States campus), The Pit (BBQ but very busy) and all have outdoor seating.
Keep in mind the R line is free and takes you for a loop around the busy spots of downtown Raleigh.
I bought some batteries, but they weren't included... so I had to buy them again. What do batteries run on?
thanks. this will be the first time in Raleigh. we (wyff and i - sorry, no pics) prefer living in more urban settings or at least close to restaurants, bars, music venues, etc.
don't pull the wool over my eyes.
I live in Durham very close to Southpoint Mall..... Not much to do except go to raleigh
Hey kids...Big Ben
Thats the beauty of Raleigh. I live in North Raleigh by Brier Creek. It takes 20 minutes to get to downtown, 25 mins to Chapel Hills and 20 minutes to Durham. They all have very different feels and offer different scenery. Cab rides downtown are $30 one way. Brier Creek has lots of choices for restaurants and quick highway access to be in Durham/Chapel Hill. Downtown Raleigh has the most options, of course. If you stay downtown I'd recommend the Marriot off Fayetteville St, downtown Raleigh. You walk outside and are surrounded by great restaurants/bars. Very clean and safe for walking.
Well said. We're not too far from Brier Creek, and my only complaint about the drive downtown along Glenwood are all the lights and getting past the Crabtree area that is always a zoo. Although for you it may be easier to just take 40 down and not mess with Glenwood
I was out in Carrboro last night - had never been there before. Really cool area as well
One word for you...Milltown. Have you been? A guy I play soccer w/ is part owner. Love that place. Fantastic beer selection, good and interesting food, the occasional UNC hottie although most are beer nerds. I do like Carborro though. Very good restaurant options. Tylers is a favorite.
is Milltown a store, area of town?
I stiffed her on the tip at Waffle House last night. Scattered, smothered, double covered.
No it's a gastropub in Carborro (bordering Chapel Hill). It's pretty granola but has great restaurants/bars for a small town. You could walk down Franklin St in Chapel Hill (their version of the Grand River) and within a couple minutes be in Carborro. I've attached the urbanspoon review. Fantastic beer selection. It's also a couple blocks from Southern Rail, Tylers, and others.
Milltown, American Restaurant in Carrboro. See 2 photos, 1 critic review and 4 user reviews. Reviews from critics, food blogs and fellow diners.
Can I come?
If you want a more urban setting, I'd check the areas around Glenwood South or downtown Raleigh. We live near Cameron Village, which is near those areas, and it's more of an old fashion walking neighborhood - reminds me of a small town feeling. But new apartments and condos are being building near Cameron right now. Glenwood South and downtown are definately more urban.
I lived in Winston Salem for a little bit. I thought it was a pretty good town.
Edit: I can't wait, must go now. Need pizza and beer. Mmmmmm. Leaving house now.

bump. are there any joints like this in raleigh?
Had family that lived in Boiling Springs, and a cousin that lives in Charlotte. Been to both nice state I liked flying over and seeing the red soil.
"The Oxford" on fayetville St in downtown Raleigh is a decent english pub.
Some nice Irish pubs in Raleigh: "Hibernian" in Glenwood South, "Tir na nOg" in Moore Square downtown Raleigh
UM, Green Bay and Chicago teams all have one thing in common: They all suck
Rex is right on. Hibernian is my favorite of the three. Best fish n chips I've had, decent beer selection and pretty hot women for the pub scene. Forgot to mention the Pour House. I haven't been there in a while but they have good live music, good beer selection and a cool vibe. It's right next to Tir na nog.
