While AMP3 PR is a NYC-based agency at its core, North Carolina has a large place in our hearts.
AMP3 is a FWV affiliate agency, who’s based out of Raleigh, NC. Together, we offer the best of both worlds: a boutique agency powered by one of the nation’s largest independently held PR firms with award-winning departments for creative, paid social and paid media. Or as we like to say: Boutique in the Front, Behemoth in the Back. In addition to our partner agency, our client Wrangler, the beloved denim brand, is based out of Greensboro, NC – just an hour from Raleigh. Both companies have brought us to the Tar Heel State on countless occasions for business & social gatherings, making North Carolina a home away from home.
If you’re ever passing through the state, heading there on a business trip, or vacationing on the beautiful shores of the Outer Banks, we have put together some top spots in NC’s capital that we recommend you visit.
Raleigh, North Carolina’s state capital is a melting pot of culture, from history & museums, to their budding art & music scene (and everything in between). Our first recommendation, which we suggest be a morning activity, is hiking or biking some of Raleigh’s 180 miles of greenway. From lakeside parks to nature preserves, there’s a scenic route for everyone. Our personal fave: Lake Johnson Park! After your mid-morning outdoor workout, we definitely think you deserve something delicious. Head over to one of Ashley Christensen’s famed restaurants – Beasley’s Chicken + Honey is a quintessential southern spot with classic dishes like chicken & waffles, chicken pot pie, collard greens, green bean casserole, and more. It’s a must!
Now on to your next stop – Raleigh’s museums and historic sites. Visit the Natural History Museum (the Southeast’s largest), North Carolina’s Museum of History, & North Carolina State Capitol building. You’ll come to find how rich in history the state capital truly is! Finally, to wrap up your day browse some of the city’s favorite boutiques or try out the new Raleigh Beer Trail, an interactive experience that brings you to some (or all) of Raleigh’s 30 surrounding breweries. Not a beer drinker? Try the Fox Liquor Bar for some innovative, craft cocktails…and some super yummy small bites.
We hope you enjoy your travels to the beautiful state of North Carolina!
