“The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh serves the people of North Carolina and all visitors as a top destination for compelling encounters with art, inside and out. A stunning permanent collection, and high-profile traveling exhibitions come through here. The sculpture garden is vast and modern. If you are lucky enough to be here in summer, their summer music series is contemporary, bustling, and the setting is gorgeous. Bring a picnic. If you plan to imbibe, buy your alcohol there, they don’t let you haul it in. ”

“A beautiful lake setting just 2 miles away from the Dutch Retreat with a paved 2 mile path around the lake. All sorts of floral and fauna. In the spring, be on the look out for the Bald Eagles raising their chicks. Shelley Lake is a popular place for bikers, runners and walkers (whether it be dog walking, stroller walking or just plain walking). ”
