Are you new to the Raleigh-Durham (aka The Triangle) area? Are you still trying to figure out where the main hot spots are where people go out with their friends on a Friday night or Sunday afternoon? If you’re new here, or have been here for a while and you’ve missed this information, I’ve come up with some suggestions to help you start exploring the Triangle!
Umstead State Park
Are you looking for a place to hike, camping, biking, fishing or even boating? You can do all of this and more at Umstead State Park. North Carolina’s third largest state park is just a five-minute drive from Camden Asbury Village, and you have plenty of outdoor activities to prepare for your next trip to the North Carolina mountains. .
Raleigh City Center
It should come as no surprise that there are a few city centers that make the list. Whether you want to take your kids to the Natural Science Museum, have a Sunday brunch at one of the many fantastic restaurants, or just have a drink with your friends after work, downtown Raleigh has something for everyone. . You would love to see how easily all of this is accessible if you live in Camden Carolinian.
Durham City Center
Do you think all city centers are the same? Wrong! While offering amenities similar to those of downtown Raleigh as well as a baseball field where the Durham Bulls play, downtown Durham offers a completely different vibe than Raleigh. Discover an unspoiled sense of history as you walk through Durham’s refurbished factories reused for modern uses. Stroll along the Tobacco District to see one of the most beautiful parts of the Triangle or check out a rooftop bar for stunning views of the city. Keep an eye out for Camden Durham’s completion, which will be rented in late 2023.

Pullen Park / Dorothea Dix Park
Looking to get out in the great outdoors but don’t want to get out in the woods? The two parks, not far from each other, offer a lot to the people of Raleigh. If you want to take your kids out to play, take an art class, or just need a place to throw a Frisbee, go check them out. Seeing the sunflower fields at Dix is a summer tradition for me!
Franklin Street / UNC Campus
Chapel Hill has the classic appeal of a college town. Franklin Street is the location of many of the best UNC student bars and restaurants typical of a college town. While you’re there, take a tour of the UNC campus. It is regularly regarded as one of the most beautiful university campuses in the country! If you’re looking to relocate to Chapel Hill but want to live outside the bustling nature of a college town, you’ll feel right at home in Camden Governor’s Village. Check them!
Formerly known as Cameron Village, the Village District has many specialty shops, restaurants, cafes and more. It offers a relaxing atmosphere if you are looking for quieter evening plans but want to be in an exciting neighborhood. Watch out for a newly built Camden, Camden Village District, to start renting in the area in 2024!
