Fayetteville Street is a major street in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. It is a north-south thoroughfare that connects the State Capitol to the Raleigh Convention Center and the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts. It is the City of Raleigh's ceremonial center, hosting parades, special events, and seasonal celebrations.
In the 2000s, an effort by the Downtown Raleigh Alliance was made to separate downtown Raleigh into five smaller districts: Fayetteville Street, Moore Square, Glenwood South, Warehouse (Raleigh), and Capital District (Raleigh). The Fayetteville Street district is home to a variety of downtown Raleigh businesses, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions.(Wikipedia)
