Raleigh Golf Guide
Sometimes called the Smithsonian of the South because it features 20 free museums, Raleigh, North Carolina will satiate the artistic appetites of even the most voracious lovers of art. Yet although Raleigh possesses more than enough world-class paintings and sculptures for visitors to peruse, the museums there feature much more than fine art. For example, the African American Cultural Complex, the Garner Station Historical Museum, the Legends of Harley Drag Racing Museum and the Marbles Kids Museum are just a handful of the cultural attractions the region features.
If, however, cultural exhibits bore visitors stiff, they can get their blood flowing by going swimming, SCUBA diving, boating, fishing, mountain biking, hiking or horseback riding, all within minutes of the city's hub. And once they've stretched their muscles, visitors may want to wind down by taking in some of the area's historic sites. Raleigh was founded as the capital of North Carolina in 1792, and visiting the State Capitol should rate high on the list for those who appreciate architecture and those who want to learn about the state's founding principles. Enthusiastic history buffs can learn about African American Heritage, Civil War Heritage or the region as a whole by visiting the sites on the Raleigh Heritage Trail.
In Greater Raleigh, 18 facilities allow golfers to work on their games, play a fun round of pitch-n-putt or test their mettle on championship courses. Of the latter, Eagle Ridge Golf Club is among the best in the region. Designed by U.S. Open Champion Tom Kite, Eagle Ridge plays through wooded terrain to a top slope of 133.
