City of Oaks

For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.
Kids will enjoy North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and North Carolina Zoo. Venture out of the city with trips to Greensboro (Country Park & Greensboro Science Center), Conservators Center (in Burlington) and Durham (Sarah P. Duke Gardens & Museum of Life + Science). There's still lots to do: hike along Neuse River Trail, view the masterpieces at FRANK Gallery, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and walk around Pullen Park.
