A day in the Falls of Neuse and Bedford area of North Raleigh provides a variety of recreational activities as well as dining and drinking experiences. The North Wake Landfill District Park, which opened in 2010, is a great place to go hiking or enjoy a picnic with a spectacular view of downtown Raleigh in the distance. This neighborhood is also close to one of the largest recreational facilities in the state, Falls Lake, which offers a wide variety of activities including swimming, fishing, boating, hiking and camping. When you get hungry be sure to check out the scratch made soups and sandwiches at Nashers or enjoy dinner on the patio at the Bedford Bistro & Bar. Cap off your day by filling up your glass at Uncorked’s wine stations.
