We’ve been examining your Google search history... but don’t worry, you’re not the only one looking up rainbow mantis shrimp and snow cream. Google dropped the Raleigh-Durham area’s top trending searches from 2022 and we’re here with the results. Spoiler alert: We like to be entertained.

It sounds like y’all are looking for a good laugh. We were the only place in the US with comedy shows as its top trending “near me” search. We’ll see you at these local comedy show venues and the opening of Goodnights Comedy Club’s new permanent spot in the Village District.

The Triangle also loves to jam — we searched for live music more than any other city. Luckily for us, a new concert venue that could draw huge performers is being developed in Downtown South. Another one could even be built on the grounds of PNC Arena. Hopefully lots of rap artists hit up Raleigh in 2023, because that was our most searched music genre. Bonus: We think you’d like the Dreamville Music Festival.

More top searches included Fourth of July events (did you catch the fireworks at Dix Park?), Asian restaurants, and pilates.
