Across the street. Raleigh's largest historic cemetery includes civil war confederate section and monuments.
Historic Cemetery in our neighborhood where many Confederate soldiers are buried. Also, famed NC State Coach, Jim Valvano, Senator Jesse Helms and other notoriety / dignitaries.
Oakwood Cemetery has been around for over 150 years, and is home to over 100 acres of beautiful landscape right adjacent to the historic Oakwood neighborhood. Nice for a stroll or to explore if you're in the mood for a peaceful escape.
Nice place for a run or evening walk, if you're looking to escape downtown for a bit.
“This is our casual hang out spot. We go here to grab a burger or drink a beer with friends.”
“Small neighborhood bar next to Yellow Dog bakery. The bar looks small when you enter but has a back outdoor seating area. Nice hangout on pleasant evening. Also, it has some fun pinball and bar games.”
“Authentic Mexican food in an old gas-station. Other end of Oakwood. 15-minute walk.”
“A beer shop plus bar with beer from all over the world. Parking is free though can be limited.”
