Fayetteville Street District

Downtown Raleigh's Fayetteville Street features a variety of downtown businesses, boutiques, restaurants and bars, as well as Raleigh Marriott City Center. It leads to the North Carolina State Capitol building and accommodates parades, special events and seasonal celebrations, such as the Ipreo Raleigh Winterfest at the 400 block of Fayetteville Street, a two-month-long winter event featuring an outdoor skating rink with natural ice.

While you're walking along this popular downtown district, stop by the City of Raleigh Museum at 220 Fayetteville Street to view exhibits on civil rights, higher education, media and a city timeline. Order from a full espresso bar or grab a bite to eat at Cafe Carolina and Bakery in the Wells Fargo Center at 150 Fayetteville Street.
