Another fabulous thing about Raleigh is the proximity to some stunning east coast beaches. Within a couple hours drive, you can find yourself playing in the waves on some gorgeous Carolina coastal beach.

Taking a trip doesn't always have to be across the ocean to some grand destination, sometimes a spontaneous trip to somewhere close and sharing it with good friends or family is the destination. Just getting away from it all is usually the goal and feeling like you are really living life.
Raleigh is lucky to have such amazing travel opportunities within a couple hours of leaving the city proper. Head west to the mountains or east to the beaches, we are pretty fortunate people here.
