    Nice little airport. In and out is a breeze with hardly any lines at the security check. It has a few nice options to eat while you wait. The 42nd Street Oyster Bar is my favorite to chill!

    One of the best airports in the US. Its small enough to get through quickly yet large enough to get enough direct flights. The restaurants and never really crowded either. Its quiet as well.

    Stroll around the campus of the famous Duke University. The Morehead Planetarium is a great place to take the kids on a North Carolina layover with a lot of events, planetarium shows & exhibitions.

    Airport seems perpetually empty because of the wide open nature of it. This is good for the traveler as you can often find a quiet place to sit. Seats with power are a big plus.

    Really nice and quick airport. The security lines are always moving and I've never seen extremely long waits for ticket counters. Definitely one of my favorite airports!

    Please check to make sure you seat belt is securely fastened. Your seat back and tray table are in the full upright and locked position & all carry-on luggage is placed completely underneath the seat.

    One of my favorite airports to fly into/out of (and not just 'cause my mama lives here). Security lines don't exist here and you can always find a decent microbrew next to your gate. #TravelHeaven

    My home airport. TSA is efficient and super friendly, Pre-Check is a snap, and the airport is always clean. Get the RDU Passport to make parking 100% painless!

    One of the best airports I have used, always tell people what a pleasure it is to have such an uncongested, small but well organized and maintained airport.

    When the check-in line is as long as the airport itself, don't hesitate to use the curbside baggage check service offered by most airlines. A tip is polite, but it is worth the saved time.

    The grilled cheese at Five Guys (not on the posted menu) with the free fixins is the cheapest and tastiest thing you can get here. Three dollars!

    Get your boarding passes texted to your phone or download Delta's app. It makes traveling SO much easier. No paper to keep up with, they just scan your phone!

    Terminal2 now has TSA Pre Check, if you go through the online screening you get the fast line and may get to keep you shoes and belt on.

    Great airport. Nice renovation. 5 guys, Jason's deli and lots of power and USB chargers all over the place. Makes traveling a little less painful.

    The airline elite security lane has been closed down a couple times - don't assume it will be open since you may have to go through the main long line with everyone else!

    North Carolina Museum of Art: Worth the trip for the building alone – the light-filled glass-and-anodized-steel West Building won praise from architecture critics nationwide when it opened in 2010.

    Lots of power plugs and free wifi. Some good stores but keep an eye on the monitors, gates change. Usually free seats where you can wait to your boarding.

    Need to charge your electronic device? Look under the triangular tables in the waiting areas. They have USB ports as well as regular outlets for charging everything.

    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.

    Secret parking near Southwest gates, exit parking on far side then cut across the lane and hop into the open lot. You're welcome.

    Five Guys burger is not far from security at the beginning of the "D" gates, get a juicy burger and fries before the flight; if you want something light, Jason's Deli is next to it!

    the double dip: a bacon cheeseburger at 5guys and then dip into Gordon Biersch for a 20oz cold one. That's a monster airport meal for under $20!

    If you are waiting for a flight to arrive, you can wait at the RDU authority building near the rental car lots. Nobody will hassle you as long as you stay with the car.

    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

    While waiting for your flight, look up toward the ceiling for the floating clouds made of chicken wire - very artistic against the setting sun.
