Top 3 Places to Enjoy the Raleigh, NC Skyline

Raleigh, NC is an absolutely stunning city. It has it all: an emphasis on natural beauty, plenty of trees, clean streets, and glimmering hi-rises. However, where can we get a picture that sums up everything that the city offers?

1. Boylan Bridge

If you’re looking for a dramatic skyline view that will sum up the rustic and urban blend that defines Raleigh, look no further. Boylan Bridge offers insurmountable views of the city, free of any obstruction. Nearby, you will find the Boylan Bridge BrewPub (soon to be reopening), a restaurant and bar that has a rooftop patio with even better views of the city.

2. Dorthea Dix Park

As one of the first humane hospitals for mental illness in the world, the property has now been converted to office space and beautiful park space. This spot is perfect for hiking, kiting, or playing with your canine friend. If you’re looking for a view of the city, it doesn’t get much better. At specific parts of the park, you will see a hilltop view of the city, lined with trees in the foreground. This view faces west, so going at sunset is a great time to enjoy the colors of the sky against the skyscrapers.

3. Western Boulevard

Driving towards the city along the historic lanes of Western Boulevard offers some of the best views of the city. Unfortunately, as you are moving, it is not the best place to take pictures, but it does offer much in the way of eye candy.
