  1. I travel every other week and take the Sprinter to the airport!
  2. Glad to see these increases! We are taking the train to Raleigh from Charlotte in a few weekends! Can’t wait to see the new Union Station. Also using the new Piedmont frequency on the way back, it fills a much needed afternoon spot.
  3. The pizza place (Sapienza) is quite good and reasonable priced too. It has become our go to pizza spot now and it is always busy with take-outs and people eating inside.
  4. Yes, beyond excited! Definitely going. I was there last October and met some of the Royal Riot members and they are beyond awesome, their dedication to watching the Panthers is impressive!
  5. That is not the Arlington. That is the Kimpton Tryon Park hotel with the sun reflecting off of it.
  6. Crate and Barrel. But I would also love to see a Zara come to either Uptown or Southend. It would kill.
  7. We had an awesome weekend in Raleigh! We took the Carolinian to Raleigh on Saturday and the Piedmont back to Charlotte on Sunday. The Carolinian was completely packed by the time we reached Greensboro. The Piedmont on the way back had 3 coach cars but they were only using two, divided between those traveling to Charlotte and those getting off at other stops. Both of them were almost completely full! Raleigh's new Union Station looks incredible and I am super jealous. We are definitely planning a trip back to see it once it is open, hopefully on the 3rd Piedmont frequency. We visited Videri Chocolate more than once because it was so good! We ate some great food at the Pit and Beasley's. My daughter had an awesome time at Marbles! Thanks again for all the recommendations!
  8. My family and I took the train from Charlotte to Raleigh this weekend. We took the Carolinian to Raleigh on Saturday and the Piedmont back to Charlotte on Sunday. I have taken the train to Raleigh before and really enjoyed it but it has always been on the Carolinian. The Carolinian was completely packed by the time we reached Greensboro. I was most excited though for an opportunity to ride the Piedmont. It was very nice! The windows are huge and much bigger than those on the standard Amtrak rolling stock so you really get to see a lot. The interior was very nice as were the seats. They had 3 coach cars but were only using two, divided between those traveling to Charlotte and those getting off at other stops. Both of them were almost completely full! Raleigh's new Union Station looks incredible and we are definitely planning a trip back to see it once it is open, hopefully on the 3rd Piedmont.
  9. Thank you so much! This was very comprehensive and useful. We are taking the train to Raleigh this weekend and excited to check things out!
  10. Hello, We live in Charlotte but are taking the train to Raleigh for a weekend soon! We have done this once before about 5 years ago; I also went to grad school at NC State but I feel like Raleigh has so much going on currently and has changed so much that I was hoping for some locals’ recommendations! We are going with my wife and 2year old daughter but we don’t need specific kids recommendations as we pretty much take our daughter everywhere (breweries, markets, restaurants, etc) and she travels a ton with us. The one true kid thing we will do is Marbles as she does love Children’s museums. The other museums my wife and I have done but don’t think we will have time this trip. Specifically, I was hoping for some insight and recommendations inthe following categories: Coffee - Our most important request! We love local coffee shops, preferably if they do pour over, but anything local. We go to Not Just Coffee in Charlotte almost every weekend. I used to go to Global Village when I was at NC State. We were thinking of checking out 42 and Lawrence. Brewery - We love a brewery with a great outdoor space! We bike to various Charlotte ones a ton when the weather is nice. Any top recommendations for a brewery, bottle shop or tap room in downtown or close by? Food - any recommendations or most popular spots for dinner? Also does Raleigh have a public market (I.e like the 7th public market) of some type that could be good for breakfast or lunch? Local scene - any recommendations or things to do to really tap into the feel of Raleigh? We spend a lot of time in southend, fourth ward, and NoDa in Charlotte as examples. Also have been loving camp north end lately! Just looking for neighborhoods / destinations / things to do that really make people love Raleigh. Or local businesses to check out? I know I want some new Raleigh jeans as my only pair are getting worn. Anyways, we are really excited about the trip and would love any thoughts or recommendations you want to share! We are hoping to visit more often via train, especially with the increased Piedmont frequency and the new Union Station!
