20 apartments for rent in Parkside, Raleigh, NC
The Parkside community is encompassed by Elkpark Drive and is located just off of Sanderford Road, slightly northeast of the Idlewood Village homes. Less than four miles away is Pullen Park, where both residents and visitors have an opportunity to get their exercise through a walk or jog along the paved trail that circles the lake or by playing with their youngsters in one of the park’s many amusement park-style rides. With tickets purchased in the park for minimal rates, parents and children can ride the train or a restored carousel or go for a cruise in a kiddie boat on the lake.
Residents looking for unique and interesting gifts or for something to brighten up their own homes might wish to visit Amplified Art, a boutique where much of the merchandise is inspired by the various genres of music or musicians past and present. The shop specializes in clothes, novelties, and music-related memorabilia, and there is also a small art gallery associated with the store where customers can purchase pieces done by locally and nationally known artists.
If a night of good food and live music is an appealing idea, the place to go is the Big Easy Cajun Restaurant and Nightlife located just less than six miles from the Parkside residences. Decorated to resemble an authentic New Orleans eatery, the dining room is enormous, with exposed brick walls, patron-flattering lighting, and wrought iron detailing in the main seating area as well as the upper loft. The bar area is also decorated with replicas of street lamps and is known for their spicy jalapeño poppers, which are washed down with immense and fairly potent Hurricanes.
