Raleigh

— 3 nights

City of Oaks

For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State University and Hinnant Family Vineyards. Get outdoors at Neuse River Trail and Clemmons Educational State Forest. Change things up with a short trip to Ava Gardner Museum in Smithfield (about 38 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: walk around Historic Yates Mill County Park, take in nature's colorful creations at WRAL Azalea Garden, and look for gifts at Videri Chocolate Factory.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Raleigh day trip planning site.

Rocky Mount to Raleigh is an approximately 1-hour car ride. Expect a daytime high around 79°F in May, and nighttime lows around 58°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Tue) so you can drive back home.
