With today’s hectic pace and lifestyle, sometimes old fashioned is perfect. If you live in an apartment in Raleigh, NC and life is starting to catch up with you, slow down and go back in time.
Did you forget about Pullen Park? Pullen Park is the fifth oldest operating amusement park in the United States and the sixteenth oldest in the world, right here in Raleigh. Slow down the pace a little and hit the amusement park, enjoy the similar things. The prices are old fashioned too, tickets for all rides are $1.
A main attraction of Pullen Park is the Amusement Center which features the carousel which was built in 1911 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places; C.P. Huntington miniature train, a one-third size, near-replica of the famous locomotive of the same name. There are also kiddie boats and pedal boat rentals and more. Bring a picnic or head to the Pullen Place Café and enjoy. This is the perfect place for a first date, a 15 year anniversary or a child's birthday party!
