Raleigh is located in the Piedmont region of North Carolina and known as the "City of Oaks" for the endless oak trees scattered about the city. Not only is the landscape beautiful, but the capital is filled with history and adventure -- which is fitting since it was named after English explorer Sir Walter Raleigh. Take in a guided tour of the old State Capitol Building or venture to two of the best museums of the South. Either way, you and your tweens will discover just what makes Raleigh so wonderful.
