Stonerose Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Stonerose’s neighborhoods are located along Stone Rose Circle, just off of Yates Mill Pond Road in Raleigh. Shoppers living in the area will be pleased to note that they are less than 4 miles away from the State Fairgrounds, a historic site and home to the Raleigh Flea Market. Open every Saturday and Sunday year round, the market has become a tradition in the area since it started in 1971. Several thousands of shoppers descend on the fairgrounds to look for bargains on everything from fresh baked foods to handmade clothing to one of-a-kind custom-made jewelry to unique gift items. Even personal vehicles are sold at the weekly gathering. The state fair is held annually in October and offers rides, games, and a chance to see the Carolina Rollergirls.
Nature lovers, or those with a green thumb, might enjoy spending a day at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum, located a mere 4 miles from the Stonerose residences. The site is home to more than 6,000 types of plants from more than 50 countries. Visitors can take a stress-reducing meditation walk or visit one of the many flower specific garden areas. On the rooftop terrace, guests can enjoy a picnic lunch or attend one of the many informal and educational lectures.
For those looking for a quiet place to grab a bite and a brew, the Bermuda Room is considered by many residents to be one of the area’s best kept secret spots. Less than 2 miles from the Stonerose community, this hole-in-the wall features what many say are the best handmade burgers and potato salad in the city. The restaurant also serves up unique and flavorful soups and a variety of other sandwiches and snacks.
