Wake Forest is a town in Franklin and Wake counties in the U.S. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Chapel of the Cross and Coker Arboretum. Visiting Sylvan Heights Bird Park and Hawk Manor Falconry will get you outdoors. Explore Wake Forest's surroundings by going to Dean E. Smith Center (in Chapel Hill), North Carolina Zoo (in Asheboro) and Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area (in Hillsborough). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Conservators Center, admire the majestic nature at Falls Lake State Recreation Area, enjoy some friendly competition at Brooks Street Bowl, and stop by Beggars and Choosers.

Glacier National Park

The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.
Step out of the city life by going to Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park and Grinnell Glacier. Change things up with a short trip to River Rafting & Tubing in West Glacier (about 48 minutes away). The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden Wall, appreciate the views at Logan Pass, trek along Highline Trail, and contemplate the waterfront views at Avalanche Lake.
