Inside Raleigh's North Person Street Neighborhood

10 / 10

Raleigh's North Person Street runs right past the iconic Krispy Kreme (if the "Hot Now" neon sign is gleaming, pull over immediately and devour a glazed doughnut fresh off the conveyor belt). Blocks from the downtown capitol, a less buttoned-up Raleigh is cultivating its entrepreneurial spirit led by an expanding creative class. Lumping North Person Street into the adjacent Mordecai and Oakwood districts is easy for locals, but, if an official Snapchat geo-tagged filter is any indication, the neighborhood has become a coveted destination for visitors and residents alike. A growing food scene is literally sprouting seeds at Raleigh City Farm, next to a handful of restaurants, bars and cafes like Yellow Dog Bakery and coffee shop. Creative boutiques and longtime neighborhood staples (such as a beloved doctor's office and a dependable auto body shop) round out the communal vibe.
