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.
(http://www.visitraleigh.com/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:
