November 14, 2017Brandy Jones
From Brunswick Forest, you are only a two-hour drive to North Carolina’s capital city of Raleigh and there is a LOT to see in this NC town.
Once you’ve fueled up for the day, set your sights on these museums and historic sites:
- Visit the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences where you can explore the Living Conservatory, ancient fossils, outer-space and more!
- Take in the North Carolina Museum of History. Here you can learn about the history of North Carolina, the Wright Brothers, World War I and the NC Sports Hall of Fame.
- Peruse the North Carolina Museum of Art where you’ll find exhibits on fashion, Night Light, disaster paintings and others.
- Before your end your museum tours, be sure to stop by the North Carolina State Capitol Building.
Break for lunch at one of these Raliegh-faves. Each one offers a little something different, but all will leave you satisfied.
After a day on your feet, grab dinner and a cocktail at one of these Raleigh eateries:
Too tired to travel home, stay the night at one of these unique nearby havens:
