A few blocks northeast of downtown Raleigh sits Oakwood—a historic nineteenth-century neighborhood characterized by lovingly-restored Victorian homes, the Historic Oakwood Cemetery and Mordecai Plantation Manor. A great destination for visitors, the district is also home to cozy neighborhood bars, a pup friendly park and an upscale, southern-inspired eatery established by multiple James Beard Award semifinalist, Scott Crawford. For a fun sightseeing adventure book a Segway tour and glide through the rolling, tree lined streets to see where prominent city founders once lived. You can even peek inside many of the private historic residences twice a year during the annual Garden Tour in May and the Christmas Candlelight Tour in December. Spend a day or two in Historic Oakwood and we promise you will find an inspiring mix of the old and the new.
