For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.
Get a sense of the local culture at Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site and North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. Your inner history buff will appreciate Historic Oakwood and Ayr Mount Historic Site. Get out of town with these interesting Raleigh side-trips: Durham (Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University & Duke Homestead), Ava Gardner Museum (in Smithfield) and Old Town Cemetery (in Hillsborough). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at The Carolina Basketball Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at Carolina Tiger Rescue, explore the world behind art at North Carolina Museum of Art, and take in nature's colorful creations at JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State University.
