Every day I pass by this place at least twice, while driving towards North Carolina State University and back to my house. It is a place within walking distance of North Campus and yes, the food there is amazing. I am talking (and writing) about Cameron Village. A nice, outdoors shopping mall in the heart of downtown Raleigh.
Recently, despite the freezing cold temperatures of late January in Raleigh, I’ve decided to test if the sign near campus that claims that Cameron Village is within 9 minutes walking from NC State was true.
So I prepared my winter gear, headphones and camera and began the journey to Cameron Village. 11 minutes later I arrived, so either the sign lied or I was done by a person walking really fast. But nevertheless, it is really within a 10 minute walk from North Campus.
This conveniently located “Village” contains very cool restaurants and shops. This time I focused more on the culinary side of it.
Cameron Village has a great selection of restaurants allowing for varied options regarding your meals. From fast food, to nice pastas to steak houses and last but not least and personally my all-time favorite: an all-day-long breakfast place. Nothing nicer than a good breakfast at 4 PM after taking a two hour final exam (I can tell you from past experience).
This is also the perfect place to go relax on a sunny Sunday afternoon or when you just need to get out of campus for a bit.
While at NC State, take a nice walk to Cameron Village and enjoy it!
