Raleigh has abundant outdoor recreational options

You may be moving to the Triangle because you have been relocated for work, you're attending classes at one of the local universities or because you simply want a change of scenery. This is great news no matter what, as there is a variety of opportunities this area has to offer residents, including an abundance of outdoor recreational activities. After settling in one of the homes for sale in Raleigh-Durham, consider enjoying the moderate North Carolina weather by visiting the following locations.

Anyone who loves fishing for largemouth bass and catfish will like going to one of Raleigh's nearby lakes including Lake Johnson. Located at 4601 Avent Ferry Road, it includes more than 150 acres for fishing and boating and over 300 acres of surrounding land for picnics, special events and classes. Consider renting one of Lake Johnson's outdoor facilities for an upcoming celebration.

Enjoy the beauty of nature by going to one of three accredited gardens in the Carolinas - the Raleigh Rose Garden at the Raleigh Little Theatre at 301 Pogue Street. The display garden is presented by the All American Rose Society and includes 56 varieties of roses. Looking for an activity for kids? Try the Marsh Creek Skate Park located at 3016 New Hope Road.
