Raleigh's Most Walkable Neighborhoods

The Best Walkable Neighborhoods in Raleigh NC

Along with an adequate amount of living space and certain home features that fit individual needs, wants, and design preferences, home buyers often consider certain locations that are walkable, convenient, and close to local amenities and attractions. And given Raleigh is both North Carolina’s second largest city and also the state capital, it’s definitely not short on neighborhoods that are safe, highly desirable, and close to plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment. 

To demonstrate, here are just a few to consider….

Historic Oakwood 

As Raleigh’s very first designated historic district, Historic Oakwood presents home buyers with awesome vintage homes and a vast network of pleasant tree-lined streets that make for a great place to walk the dog or go for a run

Five Points 

Aptly named for the intersection of Glenwood Ave, Fairview Rd, Whitaker Mill Rd, and Glenn Ave, Five Points definitely has more of an urban vibe. It’s around here you’ll find plenty of restaurants, bars, independent boutique shops, and even quite the selection of large single-family homes just off the intersection. Translation: it’s a great place to live, work, and play all at the same time! 

Hillsborough 

Conveniently located just west of downtown Raleigh, some say Hillsborough is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in town. Thanks to also being the home of North Carolina State University, you’ll find a fabulous collection of restaurants and cafes in the area, and it’s also highly touted for being safe and affordable as well!
