Overview

Day Trips® from Raleigh-Durham is packed with hundreds of exciting things for locals and vacationers to do, see, and discover not far from Raleigh-Durham. The Triangle region's population totals over 1.7 million people, and this book invites them to:

* Do something prehistoric: Examine fossilized bones, teeth, and shells on
display at the Aurora Fossil Museum or dig for your own fossils in a special
area outside.


* Do something flowery: Celebrate one of the state's most prolific plants at Wilmington's North Carolina Azalea Festival, featuring big-name music stars, a full-fledged circus, and garden tours.


* Do something patriotic: Wander through the artifacts and photographic exhibits at the 82nd Airborne Division War Memorial Museum to learn about this famed unit's history.


* Do something kid-approved: Have fun with go-karts, arcade games, water slides, and a giant wave pool at Jungle Rapids Family Fun Park.
