What type of outdoor activities do you enjoy most? Chances are, Raleigh has them all, or provides you with a quick route to get there. Explore the miles of rails-to-trails greenway system known as the American Tobacco Trail, which connects the entire Triangle area by transforming a former railroad into a beautiful place for walking, running, and biking. The area’s state parks are perfect for kayaking, exploring more greenway trails, camping, and more.
