For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.
Escape the urban bustle at Sylvan Heights Bird Park and Neuse River Trail. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Conservators Center and JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State University. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Raleigh: Durham (Duke Lemur Center & Duke University Chapel), Carolina Tiger Rescue (in Pittsboro) and North Carolina Botanical Garden (in Chapel Hill). There's much more to do: play a few rounds at Pinehurst Course Number 2, ponder the world of politics at North Carolina State Capitol, explore the world behind art at North Carolina Museum of Art, and get curious at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.

To see maps, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Raleigh sightseeing planner.

In April, daytime highs in Raleigh are 73°F, while nighttime lows are 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
