Raleigh is where big city life meets small town charm. Situated in the heart of “The Triangle”, this bustling city has something to offer everyone from sports fans and history buffs to young families and night owls.
There’s much to discover at any one of Raleigh’s world-class museums of art, science and natural history. Little ones will love Marble’s Kids Museum with its interactive and colorful exhibits. Head down to the Warehouse District’s distinct red brick buildings to find boutiques and specialty shops, snap a few photos of the historic architecture in the Capital District or crane your neck at the skyscrapers in Fayetteville.
Enjoy the outdoors at any number of beautiful parks and gardens, including the grounds at Duke and NCU. At Umstead Park, you’ll find great paths for walking, hiking and biking among the park’s 300 year old trees. If you’re visiting with family, take the kids to Pullen Park for playgrounds, a carousel and a wonderful collection of amusement rides.
When the sun goes down, the fun is only beginning. Raleigh’s nightlife spans 5 entertainment districts, each with its own clubs, pubs, live music and dining options to enjoy.
