    Go to the Observation Park outside the airport close to the parking deck. It's quiet and covered and you can watch the planes leave and land Read more

    While you’re waiting for your flight, you can stay connected with AT&T Wi-Fi. It’s easy to connect and free for AT&T customers w/ certain smartphone or home broadband plans.

    Love the new terminal. They have USB outlets to charge your electronics requiring a US plug in. You don't find that in too many airports.

    Tip of the day: use your cell phone camera to take a quick photo of were you parked. Makes it easier to locate your car when you return.

    Now that most of the airlines moved to Terminal. C security lines can get long, don't count on skating through in a few minutes any more.

    If you're pickig someone up, the best place to sit and wait is sheetz. At least the cranky cops can't bother you there!

    If you are picking someone up, one of the best places to wait is the Observation Park near General Aviation. Great view of the planes landing and leaving.

    Park your car just outside the fence just west of the north entrance. Lay down in the grass. Wait for a plane. Scream as it flies right over your head.

    Sometimes it's better to not take the Expert Traveller security line- the other lines usually have more open and move faster.

    The RDU TSA offers the gentlest fondlings.

    If you are flying southwest from T1, find the outside parking lot directly across from the far side dropoff. U have to search the garage for the secret entrance but it's a hell of a timesaver.

    Delta was quick at the checkin. Don't need to arrive 2 hrs early.

  • Jarrett C.

    Go to RDU, park in the lower level of the parking deck and grab a quick pint at Gordon-Biersch before your departure in Terminal 2

    Best deal on food: Brookwood Farms, in T2, has $1.49 tacos and bbq sliders. Located in between the CPK and gate C9.

    Most of the shops are in the newer terminal so if your flying in older one eat first.

    looking for a quiet place to sit and wait? Try C8, it's not used often for flights.

    Go to 5guys for an early morning pick-me-up. They're open at 4am and serve a mean bacon, egg and cheese

    RDU Terminal 2 is the nicest, cleanest airport I have ever flown in and out of. Hope they do the same with Term 1!

    One my new favorite regional airports, even better than pdx. Beautifully warm wooden beams provide a great contrast to the steel and cables. Also the only gordon biersch brewery I've seen in these par

    People are so friendly here- that Southern hospitality.

    I <3 this airport! It is clean, spacious & has funtionally modern & elegant design that really stands out! All airports should look/work like this! :-)

    JetBlue flies nonstop to Boston. Easy business travel.

    Don't forget to turn lights off inside car before you leave, so you don't come back to a dead battery!

    Find rare beauties at Raleigh/Durham International Airport's shops! Vintage novels, collectors maps, and sports memorabilia are just a few options.

    Avoid the egg sandwiches at Jason's Deli on the D concourse. Worst 8 bacon egg and cheese I've ever had.

    If you're flying out, come visit me at one of the Paradies shops. I'm sure to be around.

    People at the Starbucks are grabby. Ask the baristas to write your name on the cup when they take your order.

    Save time for a great shoeshine at the bottom of the escalator after the Security Checkpoint.

    Brian C. · December 18, 2011
  • Andrew R.

    Might be too late for this trip, but try the Triangle Transit bus and some park-n-rides next time. $2 each way sure beats airport parking.

    Pack light. Not only are heavy bags a nightmare to carry around, but they are more likely to fall victim to theft, damage or misrouting. For more travel tips and fun, follow @DoubleTree on Twitter!
