A River Walk in Downtown Raleigh?
According to IndyWeek, Raleigh planners have been considering creating a Greenway river walk, and have even begun work on restoring the Pigeon House Branch. After the fun I had spending two beautiful January days wandering along the creek’s banks, I think a greenway through downtown would be perfect.
The dichotomy of urban streets, graffiti, and cracked concrete mixed with open air, hiking trails, and riverbeds — it’s perfect for explorers of all kinds. Plus, antique buildings and historic mills make beautiful scenery.
And afterwards, famished and parched after hours of adventure, pizza at Mellow Mushroom and brew at the Raleigh Beer Garden sounds like heaven. Let’s make this happen, Raleigh!
Just a brief taste of what awaits you on this URBEX adventure.
