North Carolina


Located in the heart of our state, Raleigh is a fascinating place to visit. North Carolina’s Capitol City is brimming with family attractions that are both fun and educational. You’ll find it a budget-friendly destination! Check out the following free or low cost attractions, and then find a day or weekend to experience this great city. My girls and I spent a couple of days in Raleigh and here’s what we liked best.

With so much of our day spent following a routine and using some sort of technology, unstructured time outside can provide some balance. A family camping trip where you can breath in the fresh air, spy on some wildlife, and sleep under a starry sky is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the simplicity of nature while giving your family a great bonding experience. Immerse yourself and your family in the whole camping experience for a relaxing and fun adventure that you can find not too far from home.
