The Village District, previously known as Cameron Village, is one of Raleigh’s hottest neighborhoods for living, shopping, and dining. Almost everything you could ever need or want to do is right there in the thriving area! Homes near the Village District are extremely sought after for the ease of livability and great location—you’ve got Downtown Raleigh, parks, schools, and more close by. Below, we round up the top five reasons why living near the Village District is so ideal!

Shops, Shops, and More Shops

There’s no shortage of shopping in the Village District, what with over 40 chic boutiques, specialty shops, and more to choose from. Build up your wardrobe at Uniquities and C.T. Weekends, get your pup some treats at Woof Gang Bakery, go antiquing at Chesire Cat and Antiques Emporium, and stroll through the many other local and national brands for gifts—for yourself or others!

Fine and Unique Dining

After a day spent shopping, a bite to eat is crucial. We love the Village District for its diverse dining options that are sure to please any palate, whether you’re looking for a casual lunch at Cafe Carolina or splurging on a nice dinner at Piccola Italia or Ajisai. Mealtime, covered!

Sweat It Out

A workout at your fingertips? Yes, please! No matter what kind of workout you’re into, the Village District has it. Yogis love CorePower Yoga, while Crunch Fitness offers various group fitness classes, a cycle studio, weight training, cardio, and more.

All Your Errands… Check!

We mean it when we say you don’t have to leave the Village District for anything, because all your needs can be met right then and there! Need groceries? There’s Harris Teeter and The Fresh Market. Hair needs a refresh? Arrow has the guys covered, while Parlor Blow Dry Bar cures even the worst hair days for the ladies. Additionally, you can have yourself a spa day at Lorena Luca Spa, get your clothes dry cleaned, see a doc, check out a book, and so much more.
