Bedford/Falls River, NC

Families looking for a place to meet others in the same stage of life should definitely check out both of these neighborhoods. While technically two neighborhoods, Bedford and Falls River are connected together and have many similarities.

Bedford homes are typically higher-priced and have garages behind the houses, giving the streets a historic look and feel. Be sure to verify which schools the specific house you are considering is zoned for, since kids in this area may go to several different schools.

You can walk to several restaurants, including the local favorite –Bedford Bistro – as well as the many parks throughout the neighborhoods. You can even pick up fresh produce at the North Raleigh Farmers Market located in the Falls River Towne Center.

On hot summer afternoons, head to the pool to enjoy the slides and splash around with your neighbors. And if you are looking for some exercise, the Neuse River Greenway runs through the subdivisions, giving you access over 27 miles of very scenic paved trails for walking, biking and jogging.
