Stunning to be there early in the year as all the spring flowers are showing their colors, the tiered terrace area is a must see for any true flower lovers. The cherry blossoms were also spectacular.

Falls Lake State Recreation Area

Reviewed By Dan S - Raleigh, North Carolina

Falls Lake recreation area is a great place to go to do nothing. Its a good place to relax and read a book. There are also places to fish, hike, swim or have a picnic. But its a great place to get our and sit in the sun or shade.
Note that you do have to figure out where to go. There are many miles of shoreline, and access points are somewhat limited. But look them up on Google and you can find options for where to go. A nice place that may not be on the Falls Lake site is Blue Jay Point. That is a great place to go with kids, or go for a family hike. They also have a zip line area that you have to pay for, but looks kinda cool.

beautiful items of all price points. the grounds are pretty, and off the beaten path from the city. the staff is friendly, and helpful. check them out when they have artists creating works. FYI: they don't take the Discover Card, which is disappointing.

A visit to the DPAC is an event. It is much more than going to a show. You are going to a showplace which prides itself in meeting your every comfort.

Three Bears Acres

50 acres of outdoor fun for families! Our activities include a gaint jumping pillow, mud kitchen, paint wall, sling shots, 300 ft slide, tree houses, paddle boats and fishing. All included in the price. We also have Paws Cafe that sells lunch, snacks, ice cream and drinks. Seasonal fun includes Sprayground (Open Memorial Day-Labor Day). This includes a 100ft slip and slide, misting sandbox and water gun area. During the fall we have hayrides, pumpkin bowling, hay forts and pumpkins for each child paid admission!

Not the best location for an outdoor play area. You will see deer hunters standing on the side of the road, rifles and hunting dog trackers in hand. Overpriced, but the kids did enjoy it. I recommend dressing them in bright orange.

E. Carroll Joyner Park

Reviewed By Michael S - Wake Forest, North Carolina

This is great local park to get some exercise, relax or in the spring enjoy free concerts when the Town of Wake Forest puts on Six Sunday's in Spring. They've just added some strategically located workout stations along the several miles of rolling walking trails. Take a few minutes to check out the historic buildings that were meticulously restored on site. A walk (or jog) around the outer loop trail is about 2 miles.
There are large grass areas for letting your kids burn off some energy too.

Horton Grove Nature Preserve

Reviewed By jmpncsu - Raleigh, North Carolina

Horton Grove is a beautiful nature preserve in northern Durham County near the community of Bahama, protected by Triangle Land Conservancy, a private non-profit dedicated to protecting land around the Triangle region. Once part of the 30,000-acre historic Stagville Plantation, Horton Grove protects much of the former agricultural land that has mostly reverted to forest. It's mostly forested, but TLC maintains an open meadow area on the preserve through controlled burns. With around eight miles of trails, it's a great place for a hike or to take the dog for a walk. We visited in early April and there were a lot of wildflowers blooming along the forest floor. And unlike more popular hiking spots like Eno River, I think we only saw one other person the entire time we were here.

Neuse River Trail

Reviewed By SanNic44 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

...on the Neuse River Trail. I bicycle here sometimes. Others enjoy walking or jogging. There's plenty of varied scenery. Bridges go over the river and back. Asphalt the whole way except for the wooden bridges, which can be slippery depending upon your bicycle. So be careful. Benches to relax as well.

Lake Michie Recreation Area

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

It's not the largest lake but it's also not the smallest lake. It also claims to have the best large mouth bass fishing in the Piedmont. We don't fish or boat (they have boat rentals). We go there for the greenway trails, picnic shelters, hiking trails, and bird watching (we have seen osprey, great blue herons, and green herons). We also don't camp but they have campsites.

Just down the road (also part of the recreation area is the 1940 log cabin called Spruce Pine Lodge (you can rent it for parties, weddings, retreats, etc). It offers a large lawn for games, a play field, trails, picnic shelters, and campsites. We were walking around looking at the outside of the lodge when a person invited us inside to see it (it's a lovely inside as it is on the outside).

It's just a 20 minuted drive from where we live so we go there often to just sit and look at the lake while we have a sandwich and to hike. You should also check their website or call before you go because when there isn't a lot of rain they will close the lake due to low water levels (but you can still do everything else).

Museum of Life + Science

The Museum of Life and Science is one of North Carolina’s top attractions. Situated on 84-acres, our interactive science park includes a science center, a butterfly conservatory which is one of the largest in the world and beautifully-landscaped outdoor exhibits which are safe havens for rescued black bears, lemurs, and endangered red wolves. The Museum's Dinosaur Trail takes visitors on a journey through the Late Cretaceous period. Other attractions include a Farmyard, Ellerbe Creek Railway, Contraptions – a hands-on exhibit for older children and adults, a sailboat pond, The Lab in Investigate Health!, Play to Learn – an exhibit for children under six, more than 60 species of live animals and so much more. The Museum of Life and Science is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

There is a lot to do and see both indoor and out.
I have worked at science museums in several cities and the Museum of a Life and Science is a gem.
I doors there are interactive building exhibits, space artifacts, spatial puzzles, live animals, a weather section. One of my favorites is a satellite map with which you can zoom from the whole world to any location you desire.
Outside there is a fabulous tree house climbing area with an interactive street and hammocks in the surrounding area. Even changing rooms for kids who really get interactive with the stream.
The butterfly house hatches and releases butterflies every day. Also all kinds of creepy crawling bugs.
Outdoor enclosure for black bears , leaders, red wolves. The spotting scopes with a monitor are great for close up viewing.
