Peaches at the NC Farmers Market

Getting Around in SouthWestRaleigh can be done in various ways. Raleigh is becoming ever more bike-and pedestrian friendly, and public transit is being built out city– and region-wide. The area is well connected through the I-40 beltline and other highways, and the free  R-Line bus service circulates downtown. SouthWestRaleigh is a 20-minute drive from RDU International Airport.

Shopping is plentiful in SouthWestRaleigh. The NC State Farmers Market and Downtown Farmers Market are great options for fresh, local food; and grocery stores Harris Teeter, Food Lion, the Fresh Market, and Whole Foods are located across the district.
