Fun things to do in RALEIGH

The City of Oaks was once a sleepy capital city, but now has all the class and charm of your classic small Southern town, the excitement of a big city, and the affordability of a place you want to take your family to for a fantastic day out! Lucky that!

Kids can get lost in the culture and history, with Marbles Kids Museum, North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and the fascinating Historic Yates Mill County Park.  All that energy we know kids often have can be used up in places like Adventure Landing with Go-Karts and Laser Tag, or Monkey Joes for those smaller energetic travelers who love to bounce!

Raleigh also has some really beautiful activities which can give kids an eye opening experience, such as Dead Broke Farm where they can spend time with rescued horses.

Don’t think you can get those magic park moments in a big city? Of course you can! Umstead State Park is over 5500 acres of hiking, biking and horse riding trails, which the entire family can enjoy together.

Raleigh is a city that will never be short of places to go with kids, and one that once you visit, you won’t be able to quite let go.
