Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, is busting at the seams with activity. A multibillion-dollar revitalization is taking place and new high-rises and luxury condo developments are springing up throughout the downtown core. First-time visitors and locals alike will find many new and noteworthy places to check out, including some first-rate museums, such as the Museum of History, Museum of Natural Sciences, and Raleigh City Museum -- all free of charge. Historical points of interest are many, and include the North Carolina State Capitol, Historic Oakwood, and Mordecai Historic Park. Triangle Glides, located in City Market at 321 South Blount Street, offers fully narrated guided Segway tours that take in downtown's historic sights, providing a unique and fun way to get reacquainted with downtown or be introduced to the city's delights for the first time.
