Experience the Best Raleigh Has to Offer

Midtown magazine offers readers an inside look at Raleigh life, from Downtown to Midtown and northward to the 540 outer beltway. Anchored in the “second downtown” of the Midtown/North Hills area, Midtown captures the capital city experiencing an explosion in growth of population, state offices, businesses, medical facilities, and homes and apartments. Blending old historic with the modern new South, Midtown introduces you to the people and places that make Raleigh the hottest place to live, work and play.

The autumn leaves may be past peak now, but fall is still blooming in Boone. 🍂 #NC is home to countless scenic towns and for us, @exploreboone is “high” on the list. (We even wrote about it in our September/October issue…Link in bio.) We had the pleasure of staying in Boone’s newest lodging spot—a renovated motel called @rhodesmotorlodge. From the view, premier location to all things fun, inviting courtyard and delectable dining, to the balconies, freshly-poured concrete floors, friendly staff and game room, Rhode’s Motor Lodge has given “mountain getaway” a whole new meaning. #boone #boonenc #motel
Wishing all who have served a blessed Veterans Day.
