Visiting Raleigh

Raleigh, the capital city of North Carolina, is known for its natural beauty, its relationship to Research Triangle Park and its universities and colleges. Visitors to the city will enjoy the museums in Raleigh’s downtown area, including the Museum of Natural Sciences and the Museum of History. Art lovers shouldn’t miss the North Carolina Museum of Art—just a mile from Dorton Arena. On Saturdays and Sundays many of the locals like to peruse the large flea market held at the fairgrounds.

You never know what you may find. Raleigh has no shortage of shopping, from the eclectic boutiques of Cameron Village, to the largest indoor mall in the area—Crabtree Valley Mall. In the evening, head downtown and see how this area is enjoying a revitalization that has added energy, music and food to districts such as Fayetteville Street, City Market and Glenwood South—to name a few. For more information about this charming southern city, visit the official tourism site, VisitRaleigh.com.

Opened in 1952, Dorton Arena is known for its striking architecture and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The arena, located on the state fairgrounds, has 4,750 permanent seats. The 25,000 square-foot elliptical building has a spacious central concrete floor with room for a full derby track, trackside seating and vendor space. The arena’s large lobby allows for additional vendor booths.

Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
