Finland Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Raleigh-Durham may be the fastest growing metropolitan area of the country, but residents of Finland, hiding snugly behind a veil of oak groves, would hardly know it.
Finland lies about halfway between Raleigh and Durham. The neighborhood is very small, comprised only of the houses and streets east of Norwood Road, between Red Cedar Road and Halberd Court.
Finland certainly upholds Raleigh’s reputation as the “Oak City.” Groves of mature trees lie between the houses, and a small lake sits in the center of the neighborhood. Bird watching, wildlife viewing, and fishing are favorite Saturday afternoon activities in Finland.
Finland also benefits from a great location. The Interstate 540 Outer Belt makes for quick commutes to downtown Raleigh or Durham. Thanks to the neighborhood’s location out of the city, a trip to the Smokey Mountains is also short and convenient.
The hardest thing about golf in North Carolina is finding the time, because there is no shortage of great courses near Finland. The public Wildwood Green Golf Club offers a challenging and beautiful golf course. The Lonnie Pool Golf Course at North Carolina State University has tees set up to challenge every skill level. The Carolina Country Club is for the serious golfer who wants a full service country club experience.
Residents of Finland can get back to nature with a ten minute drive to Falls Lake State Park. A 12,000-acre lake surrounded by a 20,000 acre park has enough to see and do to keep most people busy the year round. Boating, fishing, hiking, and mountain biking are just a few of the activities that residents take advantage of at Falls Lake.
