City of Oaks

For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.
Change things up with these side-trips from Raleigh: The Carolina Basketball Museum (in Chapel Hill) and Durham (Duke University Chapel & Duke University). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at North Carolina Museum of Art, walk around Pullen Park, see the interesting displays at North Carolina Museum of History, and get a new perspective on nature at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.
