The Southeast's largest natural history museum features dinosaurs, whale skeletons, live animals, walk-through dioramas, special exhibits, hands-on science education and accessible scientists. IMLS National Medal Finalist, 2014.
We were two older adults looking for something to do. This free museum (please leave a donation) offered four floors in each of two buildings of science exhibits. They even have a Paleotology lab.My favorite part was the conservatory and watching all of the butterflies. Well worth the visit,

Robertson Millpond Preserve is a new Wake County Park, protecting a historical millpond on Buffaloe Creek, The park is very new, so the only amenities are a parking area, boat dock, and paddle trail. There are no restrooms or drinking water, so plan accordingly. There is a pump with non-potable water to wash off boats. The paddle trail is about three-quarters of a mile and marked by buoys. It's not long, but don't expect to race through. The millpond is really scenic and you'll want to stop and admire the views. It's basically a blackwater cypress swamp, common much further east in North Carolina, such as Merchants Millpond or Great Dismal Swamp. But completely unexpected just outside Raleigh in Wake County. Since it's a swamp, I would avoid the area in the summer as I imagine the mosquitoes and insects would be horrible. But in the fall, it's absolutely beautiful. It took my wife and I about 2 hours to paddle just under 2 miles as we stopped so many times to enjoy the views. We ventured off the paddle trail a few times, but don't go too far as it would really easy to get lost in here. Overall, a great place to paddle. Although there are no rentals at the park, you can rent from a local outfitter. And the park is very new, so check their website for updates. The paddle trail went up to buoy 37 when we visited, but they may extend it further.

We have lived here too long without visiting this place! We were there on a Saturday, and only the 2 picnic shelters were in use. There are probably another 20 picnic tables in the shade of the pines and hardwoods, scattered around the entrance.There are miles and miles of walking trails, either crushed stone or pine needle paths that are easy to walk on, but watch for tree roots. We actually saw a family with small children that allowed the kids to come in flip flops. The parents had on good hiking shoes, which I would strongly recommend. It is hilly, woodsy and some mud. We only saw one snake in 2.5 hours, but still, flip flops? Anyway, we will be back. We saw the same hikers while we walked because we all kept looking for trail markers. It is very poorly marked, very poorly. But a great place anyway.

Richard Stanhope Pullen founded Pullen Park on March 22, 1887. Once farmland, Mr. Pullen donated the land as a gift to the City of Raleigh to be used as parkland. He characterized it as on old cow pasture, red and rocky. He intended this land to be used for the recreation use and pleasure of the inhabitants and the visitors to the City of Raleigh. Through his visions, Pullen Park became the first public park in North Carolina.
What a wonderful park! It reminded me of the type of parks with rides from my childhood, 50s and 60s. The park opened in 1887. It still has the original carrousel kept in good condition over the years. There is a train that will take you around the perimeter of the park. Each ride cost $1. Big modern playground area for children. A lake with foot paddle boats, a little enclosed boat ride for toddlers, and a great concessions with traditional and healthy selections like sandwiches, wraps, soup, salads. I ordered romaine/kale Caesar salad. The soup of the day was roasted tomato soup - delicious, reasonably priced. A nice memorial to The Andy Griffith Show. You have to go to Pullen Park weather it's solo, with family/friends. You will have a good time.

The Green Machine Raleigh Brew Tour is your one stop shop for all things beer in Raleigh. In this 4 (ish) hour tour we will visit the best breweries the triangle has to offer For $65pp you get a private ride in a completely custom bus, (complete with bathroom, surround sound, direct TV and a mini bar!) along with tours of the brewing process at Big Boss and samples at each and every brewery!
we got to visit 3 local breweries on this 4 hour tour and we had an absolute blast! The servings were very generous and we learned a lot about each brewery and their beer -- the bus itself is amazing! I was so impressed - especially that it has a bathroom! The surround sound, charging stations, TV and ice maker and refrigerator were amazing bonuses!
Thanks to the Raleigh Brew Tour for a fabulous day!

Marbles Kids Museum is a hands-on, interactive destination that inspires children to be creative thinkers, active learners and confident individuals in today's world. With five galleries and two outdoor escapes, there is no shortage of activity for kids birth to 12 and their families. The campus also features the Wachovia IMAX Theatre at Marbles Kids Museum. This 267-seat giant-screen experience is the only 3D capable IMAX theatre in North Carolina.
Give that Raleigh is a pretty family friendly type of city (and decent size) you expect this place to be impressive - and it is.
The ship-sea area is popular. The sports are is pretty cool as well. There's an area for building, an area for art, an area to play with fire trucks, farm animals, etc.
All in all a lot for the kids to see - though often very crowded, so don't expect a lot of personal space.
I would like to see them add a section with a changing/ rotating theme to add something new for the kids who are members and frequent the museum but otherwise no complaints.

Explore more than 14,000 years of North Carolina history, from the state's earliest inhabitants through the 20th century. The major exhibition The Story of North Carolina features fascinating artifacts, multimedia presentations, and an interactive format for all ages. Other exhibits highlight the state's military history, sports heroes, decorative arts and more. Monthly programs include children's programs, craft demonstrations and family events. The Museum Shop, featuring North Carolina crafts, and the on-site restaurant Pharaoh's at the Museum are open daily. Admission is free, although some special exhibits require a fee. Free parking is available on weekends in the Jones/Edenton Street lot. Museum hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
In one day there really isn't time or energy to take in the whole museum. We concentrated on some temporary exhibits: in particular I enjoyed the exhibit on North Carolinians in WW I, which was a fine exhibition about the war iun general and locals who fought; I also liked a small but interesting exhibit of a private Tiffany stained glass collection on loan while a local mansion is undergoing repairs.

NCSU has a sprawling campus with many excellent athletic facilities and is adjacent to the fabulous Pullen Park. Located in Raleigh not far from the state capital and legislAtive buildings, it is both a typical university microcosm and a part of the capitol City. Be sure to take in the unique bars, restaurants and shops along hillsborough street.
