One Day Raleigh Suggestions

I'm going to be in Raleigh for the Krispy Kreme Challenge on February 7 at NC State. After the race I am planning on just hanging out in the area for the rest of the day, but don't have any ideas on what to do.

Any suggestions anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated! I would definitely like to do some things that are local...possibly see some of the college districts if they are easy to navigate. The hotel I'm staying at is close to the airport, but am willing to drive anywhere in the area.

Congrats for doing the KKC! Such a crazy event.

I am going to make an assumption that you are on the younger side, so will send you to this downtown website: http://www.downtownraleigh.com/

Which does a good job of laying out the downtown districts and the things to see/do/eat in each. iIRC, you start and end the race at the NCSU belltower, so you will be right on the NCSU campus and Hillsborough Street. The KK is near Oakwood. This should give you your bearings on the map on that site. If you have particular questions about things listed there, feel free to ask, but that is a good place to start.

I you happen to be staying the night, Dave Grisman and John Sebastian are playing downtown, there are a number of big party/events, among tons of other things, I am sure.

Have fun!

If a basketball fan, both Duke and UNC have conference home games on 2/7. (NC State does not). Great venues and the teams aren't half bad either...
