Why wish, just do. That directive discovered in the Free Expression Tunnel—aka an iconic graffitied pedestrian tunnel that runs under the railroad tracks on NC State’s campus—got us thinking. What’s Raleigh ready to do this year? Here, we take a look at the will-do’s of 2023 as we know them.

Wheels up! 

  • New Low-Fare Airlines and Direct Destinations
  • Blowing into the mix in February is Breeze, launching with five destinations: New Orleans; Hartford, CT; and Providence, RI—and adding Jacksonville, FL; and Columbus, OH, to its lineup May 18.
  • Keeping us “palm,” Avelo Airlines is adding to its roster of flights in February with service to six Florida cities: Orlando, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Sarasota, Palm Beach. 
  • Reykjavik extension, rejoice! Icelandair’s nonstop service to the Land of Fire and Ice has proven so popular with RDU flyers that the airline just announced it will start the season this March, rather than May.

Council Focus:

  • Affordable housing
  • Public safety
  • More reliable transit


Developments Dropping:

On the Cal:

  • J. Cole’s Dreamville Fest returns to DTR April 1–2.
  • Tony Award-winning Sunset Boulevard is coming to NC Theatre this fall. 
  • Long-anticipated Dueling Dinosaurs exhibit finally drops at NC Museum of Natural Sciences,
    late 2023. Rawr!
