Why rent a car in Raleigh?
Urban sophistication meets eclectic small-town charm in the “Triangle” of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. This progressive region offers the sports, museums and nightlife of a major city, but you’ll need a car to get to where the Triangle really shines: innovative universities, idyllic city parks and rural barbecue joints.
Where to go in Raleigh
The largest city and state capital, Raleigh is where you’ll find elegant mansions and trendy restaurants. You can’t beat an outdoor concert or movie at the North Carolina Museum of Art on a sultry summer evening, or a stroll through the 200-year-old historic Oakwood neighborhood, especially around the holidays. In newly revived Durham, the artsy tobacco warehouse restaurant and entertainment district is celebrated for both its cuisine and the region’s infamous Durham Bulls. Catch one of the area’s many beloved teams at a sports bar on Franklin Street in the quintessential college town, Chapel Hill.
Getting around Raleigh
The “Triangle” consists of Raleigh to the east and Durham and Chapel Hill to the northwest. The Raleigh-Durham (RDU) airport sits in the middle, an equidistant 20- to 30-minute drive from each. The area has little traffic or congestion outside of the city centers, but that means sprawl; a car and a good map or GPS is essential unless you’re limited to a single downtown. Public transportation is spotty and unreliable, especially between the cities. Parking can be congested in the three downtowns, but is plentiful and usually free beyond these areas. The Research Triangle Park (RTP) business community is near RDU but little else.
Raleigh car rental locations
All the major rental agencies can be found at Raleigh-Durham Airport (RDU), as well as at locations around town. Wherever you pick up your car, you’ll get a great deal on your Raleigh car rental from Hotwire.
