6 Things to do in Raleigh

Much like South Carolina, North Carolina is about southern charm, hospitality, rich history and culture. Here are the tip six things I’d love to see in Raleigh, North Carolina.

  1. Historic Yates Mill: This beautiful preserve is dedicated to wildlife and environmental protection. The property is 174 acres and looks like a lovely place to learn about the natural habitats of North Carolina.
  2. NC Museum of History: You know I love a history museum and this one looks like a blast! There are over 500 artifacts sitting within 6,500 square feet. It even has and interactive WWI exhibit.
  3. Museum of Natural Science: Fun Fact, all four major gems are found in North Carolina and are featured at the museum. They are emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and diamonds. The museum also has fun hands on activities and exhibits.
  4. Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral: This is a very new cathedral. Ground breaking took place in 2015 and was dedicated on July 26, 2017. It is a lovely Romanesque Revival style and cost an estimated $46 million.
  5. Prairie Ridge Ecostation: There is a fascinating green architecture highlighted here, made with recycled materials. There are also hiking trails, native plant species, and exciting wildlife.
  6. NC Museum of Art: This museum was started in 1947. North Carolina was the first state to use public funds to purchase art for the gallery.

I think Raleigh, North Carolina has a lot to offer, especially when it comes to nature. Norther Carolina has a spectacular environment and delightful wildlife that must be protected and preserved for future North Carolinians.
