The second-largest city in North Carolina, Raleigh is a bustling metropolitan area with plenty to offer in the way of activities and entertainment. Known as “The City of Oaks,” activities in Raleigh can consist of cultural interests such as museums and festivals, or bucolic getaways in the surrounding natural beauty of the area.

Since 1932, Raleigh has been home to the North Carolina Symphony, which tours the state throughout the year but is headquartered in downtown Raleigh at the Meymandi Concert Hall, part of the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Also located in the neighborhood is the Carolina Ballet, operating for over 20 years and receiving both national and international praise. The ballet is funded by a multi-million dollar budget, employing 38 dancers in 8 programs per season in works by legendary masters and contemporary choreographers. The Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh, also known as CAM, is an ever-changing curated experience of contemporary art and design housed in a 1910 warehouse in downtown Raleigh.
