New constructions with sleek, modern designs are also popular. Many bus routes converge downtown, so no resident will have a hard time getting around by public transportation. Frequenters of the train may want to live near the southwest border of the neighborhood for easy access to the Amtrak station.

Downtown Raleigh is comprised of five distinct districts. The Capital District contains the city's grandiose government buildings such as the North Carolina State Capitol and the Executive Mansion. The Fayetteville Street District is characterized by beautiful skyscrapers, outdoor cafes, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, and public art. The Moore Square District is also known for its art scene and contains several historic sites and fantastic restaurants. The western portion of Downtown Raleigh, which includes the Glenwood South District and the Warehouse District, is a former industrial area that has recently transformed into a hip destination for dining and retail.

Downtown Raleigh comes alive at night with something for everyone. Enjoy a Friday out on a rooftop beer garden, sample the whiskey at a hip cocktail bar, or head over to Boxcar Bar + Arcade to explore a huge collection of classic and modern arcade games. Movie nights at the IMAX Theatre are also a blast thanks to gigantic, 3-D capable screens. For live music, check the schedule at Red Hat Amphitheater or Lincoln Theatre to see if any of your favorite artists are coming to town.

Take a walk through historic Moore Square, a park that's been a part of Raleigh since the city's early days. North Carolina State Capitol, surrounded by majestic monuments, is another great place to take it easy on the weekend.
