While we love the Raleigh area’s great restaurants, fun bars, and shopping venues, sometimes we just need a day to escape the bustle and reconnect with nature.

Below you’ll find a list of nearby hiking spots well-suited for those at all levels—from families just looking for an ideal picnic spot to experienced hikers looking for a place to camp for the weekend.

A quick overview of renter’s insurance

Posted by Emily Park on Feb 16, 2018 9:26:31 AM

There are many perks to renting an apartment rather than owning a home: no yard work, no property taxes, and someone else to handle (and pay for!) maintenance work. You won’t need to worry about insuring the property, since the apartment complex already has a policy in place.

You'll still need to have a plan for if an accident or natural disaster causes damage to your personal possessions. For example, a water leak could not only damage your apartment flooring (which your landlord is responsible for), but ruin your furniture or stereo system. You'd be on the hook for the cost of replacing those personal items.

That’s where a renter’s insurance policy comes to the rescue!
