Evertt Tract Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Everett Tract is a neighborhood in Raleigh, North Carolina. The neighborhood is located just north of North Carolina State University and Hillsborough Street.
One of the biggest draws to the area is the pride of the community, North Carolina State University. In addition to providing an education to numerous area residents as well as students from around the country and the world, the school is a huge area employer. Many of the residents in surrounding area are employed either directly or indirectly by the school or one of the many services the school provides. The school also has great support within the surrounding community. On Wolfpack game days, it is common to see area pride in the clothing, banner, signs, and just general chatter about the school’s sports teams.
West of the neighborhood, off Hillsborough Street, is the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds are home to the state fair. The fair brings in visitors from around the state and beyond for farm competitions, craft shows, and numerous other judged events. The state fair is also popular with residents for the wide variety of food that comes to town. Many vendors showcase some of the most unusual foods that most people have never seen or heard of, making it a truly unique eating experience. There are also many shows, live music, and numerous vendors that make the show a great time. The biggest draw to the fair, however, is the carnival which features many rides and games.
North of the fair grounds is Carter Finley Stadium. This stadium is the home of the North Carolina State University football team. Next to Carter Finley is RBC Center, the home of the Carolina Hurricanes professional hockey team for the area. Both venues also used for many concerts and other major events.
