I am seriously thinking about moving to the Raleigh area early next year. This is because I will be graduating with my degree in computer science in December and I will need to relocate because I live in Michigan where the job market is the worst in the country. I am taking a vacation to the area in two weeks to get the feel for the area to see if it is a place that I would like to live. I was wondering what the must see sights around the town. I was thinking about taking a day trip to Wrightsville Beach while I am down there. Is this the closest beach to Raleigh and if there are any other beaches that you would suggest? I am a young single guy traveling by myself so I'm also looking for fun things to do while I am down there. What fun things are there to do in downtown Raleigh such as bars, clubs, and any other events that are going on. I also am going to check out the other cities in the triangle but I think that I will spend most of my time in the Raleigh area because that area is where I think I would like to live. Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks!!!

Let's see - the Glenwood South area is a popular restaurant/bar area. It starts near the intersection of Glenwood and Peace. There are also some bars closer to downtown, Woody's at the City Market is popular - especially on Tuesday nights. Near Moore Square there is the Pour House and Tir Na Nog. You might also try around NC State which is off Hillsborough Street - can't tell you any place specifically, but you can drive around that area and see what looks interesting. Wrightsville is the closest beach. At work I have a link to website that has all the area bars and what bands/specials are going on. I couldn't find it on Google, so I'll try to remember to PM it to you on Monday.

If you want to just go exploring, do it on a Sunday. Especially after lunchtime. Traffic is light and you can actually get around the city very easily. It was on a Sunday excursion of driving around and seeing things I usually didn't bother with on a weekday because of traffic, work and whatnot.

The clubs are more than likely to be pretty dead - it's Sunday. But that's a double-edged sword - it also means less traffic if you just want to see some sights.
