Hyatt House, Raleigh, NC Neighborhood Attractions Guide #HyattHouse

Welcome to the Hyatt House Raleigh, NC Neighborhood Attractions Guide 

Hyatt House is in the beautiful North Hills area of Raleigh, NC. It is a chic, uber-hip and friendly shopping and dining area of Raleigh.  We love it! In fact, since the twins were smaller,  we've visited the Fountain and made wishes while tossing pennies. We've taken photos and enjoyed dining, shopping and attractions in this quaint and peaceful locale. 

North Hills is Raleigh's Midtown. This innovative, multi-faceted district offers many options to live, work, shop, dine, and play, according to Visit North Hills. 

This Segment is the Attractions portion of my Hyatt House Neighborhood Guide work with Hyatt House, Raleigh. Previously, we have covered their Neighborhood Guide for all things Dining, and Shopping. We are completing the project with this Attractions Guide. You are talking about fun! This is the perfect assignment for us. Hyatt House is now offering their own microsite to share these options with customers. I loved writing these guides and best of all -  Hyatt House is letting me share it with you here.
