For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.

There's much more to do: engage your brain at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, trek along Neuse River Trail, have fun and explore at Marbles Kids Museum, and see the interesting displays at Airborne and Special Operations Museum.
