Spend the day in one of several spacious, pristine parks in the Raleigh area. Oakwood Park is a small, community park on 12 acres of land, it has a small pavilion and a dog park. The Fred Fletcher Park spans 21 acres that feature beautiful garden, walking paths, and two tennis courts. You will find plenty of nature in the park, such as dragonflies, butterflies, ducks, frogs, and a variety of bird species. Lake Johnson Park is a great getaway, with a 150-acre lake surrounded by 3.5 miles of paved Greenway trails and another 1.9 miles of unpaved trails to explore.
Art lovers will enjoy seeing the different exhibits that grace the walls of the Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh. The museum has no permanent collections.

Another cultural destination is the North Carolina Museum of History, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. Learn the fascinating history of the state with the 20,000 square-foot exhibit, "The Story of North Carolina."
