Hi Debbie, Raleigh has a variety of lakes within a close proximity. Lake Crabtree is less that 20 minutes from downtown Raleigh, and has options for hiking, mountain biking, sailing, and fishing. Falls Lake is about 35 minutes from downtown, is larger than Lake Crabtree, and is popular for paddling, fishing, and swimming.
