Raleigh — 4 nights

City of Oaks

For those not from the South, Raleigh might be one of the region's better-kept travel secrets.
Venture out of the city with trips to Alamance Arts (in Graham), Old Town Cemetery (in Hillsborough) and Greensboro (International Civil Rights Center & Museum & Greensboro Science Center). And it doesn't end there: deepen your understanding at Duke University, look for all kinds of wild species at Fletcher Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Neuse River Trail, and walk around Pullen Park.
