The Best Hidden Gems in Raleigh, N.C.

The Raleigh area is home to some of the best-kept secrets when it comes to entertainment, food, shopping and more. For some truly-awesome experiences, be sure to add these hidden gems to your travel list.

Annie Louise Wilkerson, MD Nature Preserve 
Perched along the southern shores of Falls Lake State Recreation Area, this 157-acre outdoor retreat is a perfect starting spot for a jaunt along the Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST, known as "N.C.'s hiking trail," stretches more than 1,000 miles from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks). The preserve also offers some of the best shorter hiking trails in Raleigh which meander between meadows, through an oak-hickory forest, around a one-acre farm pond and past hidden rock crops, making for easy exploring for the entire family.

Robertson Millpond Preserve 
Perhaps you prefer a hidden gem you can paddle through. For that, take a short drive from Raleigh out to the town of Wendell to find Robertson Millpond Preserve, the area’s only bald cypress habitat.

Restaurants in the Raleigh area—and across the state—are currently operating with a  dine-in seating capacity of only 50% of maximum. This allows restaurants to safely socially distance diners keeping parties at least 6 feet apart from one another.

Many local restaurants in the City of Oaks and beyond have been certified under the 
Count On Me NC program, a public health initiative that specifically trains businesses to help keep everyone—both employees and guests—safe from COVID-19.

  • Social distancing (6 feet apart from others) must be practiced while in public.

It is required that a cloth face covering is worn in public places and when you may be within 6 feet of other people who are not household and family members. This would include indoor community, public and business settings as well as outdoors when you cannot stay at least 6 feet away from other people.

We are in Phase 2.5 through at least Fri., Oct. 2

Phase 3
Phase 3 will likely ease even more restrictions on businesses and increase occupancy and mass gathering limits, but this is subject to the data. Depending on state COVID-19 trends, restrictions may be lifted more slowly or some restrictions may have to be reinstated to ensure the health and safety of North Carolinians.

We truly miss having visitors around. We miss hearing the “Wow,” the first time someone lays eyes on the three-story globe of the Nature Research Center or the “Yum,” when a diner tries one of our best barbecue spots.

We miss your energy and your inquisitiveness, your questions and your delight. And we are anxious to throw our doors wide open and welcome back big festivals and gatherings when it's safe. In the meantime, there are still many things we can encourage you to do here in the Raleigh area with confidence for your safety.

Many area restaurants and hotels have been certified through the Count On Me NC program, which teaches hospitality businesses how to ensure the best and safest practices when serving guests.

And the great outdoors are still great. Guest can still take in miles and miles of greenways, water sports (both energizing and relaxing), the stand-still beauty of nature and a whole lot in between.

We believe with all our hearts there are great days ahead, and Raleigh, North Carolina’s welcome mat is always out for you!
