Raleigh
For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.
Let the collections at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and Airborne and Special Operations Museum capture your imagination. Change things up with a short trip to Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham (about 36 minutes away). There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Historic Oakwood, examine the collection at North Carolina Museum of History, explore the world behind art at North Carolina Museum of Art, and stroll through Pullen Park.

In May in Raleigh, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 58°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
