North Raleigh

What Makes North Raleigh So Cool

A little bit suburban and a little bit urban, North Raleigh is truly the best of both worlds. This area within Raleigh city limits is known for its luxury communities, established country clubs, upscale shopping centers, and proximity to major highways like I-540 and Capital Boulevard. Generally, the North Raleigh area is located north of I-440, east of Glenwood Avenue, south of Falls Lake, and west of Capital Boulevard.
