The Chevy Cruze continues to be a popular compact car, and that popularity is set to rise with the debut of the new hatchback for the 2017 model year. Whichever model you choose, the Cruze is an excellent vehicle for exploring your neighborhood and surrounding areas in the Triangle.

Blue Ridge Parkway

Living in the Triangle is great because there are so many places to explore close by. The Blue Ridge Parkway, filled with beautiful scenery, runs through the western part of the state and into Virginia, beginning in Cherokee, NC, and is just a few hours away. The Raleigh area also has its share of beautiful scenery. NC Highway 751 runs between Durham and Apex, providing a spectacular view of Jordan Lake, along with old structures and other classic architecture.


If you feel like venturing out of the Triangle area, The Outer Banks National Scenic Byway is a drive like no other. With the Atlantic Ocean on one side of the road and the Pamlico Sound on the other, it’s the idyllic drive for anyone who appreciates the beach.

For those of you that enjoy the excitement of the city streets more than natural wonders, there is no shortage of that in the area.

Down in the City of Oaks

Raleigh’s growing downtown includes both the “Glenwood South” area, home to many trendy bars and restaurants, and the area surrounding the state government buildings on Fayetteville and Wilmington streets, where on any given night you can cruise by a number of music venues with tunes wafting out onto the sidewalks.

Top o’ the Hill

Chapel Hill’s main drag has long been Franklin Street. Home to iconic venues like the Varsity Theater and Cat’s Cradle, it’s considered the hub of social life for those attending UNC Chapel Hill. Check ahead before going for a cruise there, as the street is often shut down for festivals.

An American Tradition

Right in the center of Durham you’ll see the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Home to the world’s most famous minor league baseball team, the ballpark reflects many of the characteristics of the baseball stadiums of yesteryear. It also blends in perfectly with the newly revitalized historic downtown Durham architecture.
