We just recently visited Raleigh, NC and our family that lives there recommended we all go to Pullen Park one afternoon. We were visiting in the last week of February so the train ride was not open yet but the carousel was a hit with our kids. It is a historical carousel and it is beautiful with untradional animals to ride such as jackrabbits, lions etc...It was also inexpensive and my children ages 7 & 9 rode several times. We also visited the playground area which was nicer for the younger kids in our group but the older kids just played frisbee in the grass and were plenty entertained just being outside. It looks like they have trails etc...but we didn't have time to explore too much and the temperature was starting to drop on us but overall a great afternoon and I'm sure even better in season.
