SHOPPING THE TRIANGLE
One of the first questions I normally hear is...."Where are the closest malls and where I can I eat?"
There are plenty of shopping opportunities in the Triangle ranging from small mom & pop stores to large malls. The BIG 3 in the Triangle are Triangle Town Center in NE Raleigh; Crabtree Valley Mall on the western side of Raleigh and The Streets at Southpoint in Durham. Other malls include Cary Towne Center , North Hills Mall in Raleigh, The Shops of Cameron Village in downtown Raleigh and Brier Creek Commons on the border of Durham & Raleigh.
If you like outlet shopping, this is a great area to live. Approximately 45 minutes to the east of Raleigh are the Smithfield outlets and the same time to the west lie the outlet malls in Burlington or the Tanger Outlets in Mebane. Happy Shopping!!
Now once you have finished all that shopping, you may be hungry so here is a list of the more popular restaurants in the Triangle...but if nothing fits your fancy, the amount of eateries depending upon your dietary needs or culinary preferences is almost endless.
