For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.
On the 27th (Sat), admire the masterpieces at North Carolina Museum of Art, then admire the natural beauty at Sarah P. Duke Gardens, and then brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Durham Distillery. Keep things going the next day: walk around Pullen Park, then engage your brain at Marbles Kids Museum, and then engage your brain at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.
