Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
Known originally as Wake Crossroads, Raleigh began life as a rest stop for folks traveling north and south. Later, the North Carolina General Assembly bought the Crossroads from local businessman Joel Lane and laid out a planned community, modeled on Philadelphia, to serve as its permanent residence. North Carolina signed the Ordinance of Secession – joining the Civil War – from Raleigh’s State Capitol. After the war, the economy switched from cotton to tobacco, and Raleigh adapted. Today, it is a modern city with a traditional feeling, serving local businesses as well as the burgeoning research triangle. During your treasure hunt in laidback, historic Raleigh, expect to encounter statuary commemorating Confederate heroes; a 20-foot acorn; the best bbq ribs joint in the area, and many more surprises.
