Sky Gazer – The World’s Largest Traveling Ferris Wheel

The154th Annual N.C State Fair is coming to Raleigh October 13 – 23rd.  If you haven’t ridden the Sky Gazer, this is your chance to sit on top of the world eating a candy apple with the largest traveling Ferris Wheel in America! The N.C. State Fair is 11 days of high-flying rides, deep-fried foods, blue ribbon competitions, nightly fireworks, educational exhibits and so much more! What better way to capture the essence of Fall!

Scenic Stroll Through Historic Oakwood

Fall is a beautiful time to take a stroll through Historic Oakwood, a neighborhood of homes near the city center which mostly date from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s. During the fall, houses in Historic Oakwood are adorned with some of the best Halloween decorations in the area including the infamous Oakwood Halloween House.
