Currently i am starting to plan a backpacking trip around the US for 6-8 weeks relying on public transport (i've already heard its going to be hard!) and wondered if Raleigh would be a good place to visit
We are two 22yr old female students, not so much interested in museums/history, more interested in beaches, shopping, the outdoors, river tubing, and so on.
From reading Lonely Planet USA Raleigh comes across as a lively student town although not as big and hectic as Charlotte which i think suits us well.
Are there budget accommodations and is there a greyhound station that links to the main tourist spots??
Thanks for any help!
