The City of Oaks has been named to the Forbes Travel Guide list of “12 Top Destinations of 2017.”
Sharing the top 12 with global destinations such as Bogota, Colombia, and the Indonesian island of Bali, Raleigh is one of six mainland U.S. cities to make the list. The others are Washington; Santa Barbara, Calif.; Phoenix, Los Angeles and Houston.
The Forbes list, published Monday, cites the food scene as one of the main reasons to visit Raleigh. The write-up specifically mentions Scott Crawford’s Crawford & Son, the Herons restaurant at The Umstead Hotel and Spa (which is in Cary) and the Morgan Street Food Hall and Market, which will open this year.
