RSM Talks: Downtown Garner

Published on June 22, 2015 in RSM


What’s So Great About Garner?

As an office located right in the heart of historic downtown Garner, Rising Stream is cozy with the atmosphere and events that give Garner its comfortable hometown feel. With its location being so close to ever-bustling downtown Raleigh (12 miles or a quick 10 minute drive), there’s literally always something to do, no matter what day, time, season, or holiday it is. While retaining its small-town feel, Garner is a charming community that can easily boast of its exceptional quality of life. Along with an abundance of recreational and cultural arts opportunities, this small town also offers hundreds of acres of award-winning parkland, including Lake Benson and White Deer Park.

Things To Do Around Town

Garner’s small town feel makes it that much more enjoyable to enjoy a night out, offering a wide array of dining options and local eateries. Spend some time honoring our veterans by visiting the Garner Veterans Memorial at Lake Benson Park, or test your racing skills at Rush Hour Karting for indoor adult karting. Find an array of shopping choices in the area’s 3 major shopping malls with a collection of local boutiques, since Garner has become a regional shopping mecca.
