Raleigh, North Carolina

The state capital and one of the points that makes up North Carolina’s Research Triangle, Raleigh is home to a half-dozen colleges including North Carolina State University. This being North Carolina, the rallying cry in Raleigh is for basketball…and barbecue. And not just any barbecue. Pork barbecue is the name of the game. Pulled pork sandwiches are a favorite, topped with a heaping helping of coleslaw. Pork ribs and hush puppies excel here too. On a hot day, nothing goes down better with North Carolina barbecue or a fried chicken dinner than a tall glass of iced tea. If you’re looking for trendy dining in the City of Oaks, the gentrifying Glenwood South neighborhood offers anything from wine bars to sports bars. The enormous State Farmers Market is held daily and shows off the region's bounty, from organic fruits and veggies to fresh-baked cakes and lovingly preserved jams and jellies.
