Raleigh
For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Historic Oakwood and North Carolina Museum of Art. Get outdoors at Sylvan Heights Bird Park and Conservators Center. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Raleigh: Fayetteville (Veterans Park & Airborne and Special Operations Museum), North Carolina Zoo (in Asheboro) and Durham (Sarah P. Duke Gardens & Duke University Chapel). There's still lots to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Cameron Village, stroll through Pullen Park, explore the engaging exhibits at Marbles Kids Museum, and examine the collection at International Civil Rights Center & Museum.

For where to stay, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read our Raleigh day trip planner.

August in Raleigh sees daily highs of 88°F and lows of 69°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
