The weather here in North Carolina is fantastic (at the moment)...the temperature hit 72 degrees today and has

been up and down from the mid 50s to the mid 70s. Like they say..."It's North Carolina

Weather...if you don't like it, hang around a few hours and it will change!"

As a resident of Raleigh, I can assure you that you will not have time to visit all the

historical places, the fun, places and the educational places Raleigh has to offer.

However, here is a link to some fantastic events that will occur in December and depending

upon your stay dates, you may like to take advantage of several events.

( There are links from this page for family events as

Durham, only 20 minutes from downtown Raleigh, has the American Tobacco Campus which puts

you at the Durham Athletic Park (Durham Bulls Stadium), the Durham Arts Center for plays

and special events, several great resturants, and lots of photo opportunites.

So, If you're looking for a getaway that's fun for the whole family and easy on your

pocket, look no further than Raleigh. With more than 20 free attractions, this stately and

energetic capital city offers an affordable way to enjoy history, culture and the good old

outdoors. Spend the day hopping between the three state museums of art, history and natural

sciences: all offer free admission. Visitors are free to wander around the grounds of the

State Capitol, where they can also observe the legislative process. Stroll past the graves

of Civil War generals at a historic cemetery or walk along cobblestone streets of City

Market. Shop for the greenest broccoli, reddest apples and tastiest homemade treats around

at the State Farmers Market. With over 150 parks, lakes and green ways in Raleigh alone,

there is ample opportunity to enjoy golf, biking, swimming, boating and other outdoor

adventures. If you are looking for a broader variety of travel suggestons, check out the following URL:
