Pullen Park has a carousel and train and is one of the oldest continuously running amusement parks in the world.

Raleigh also has one of the top 10 flea markets in the country with over 1,000 vendors and runs every weekend at the Fairgrounds except during the State Fair in October.

We have four state parks in our metropolitan area if you include Durham and Chatham counties. Jordan Lake State Park has a 14,000 acre reservoir and is home to the largest concentration of bald eagles on the east coast. You can take a captained pontoon boat tour with Jordan Lake Tours.

There are also tons of horse farms offering trail rides. Dead Broke Horse Farm offers trail rides on real horses (not ponies) (children under 6 ride with a parent on a draft horse).

The Durham Bulls (AAA) and the Mudcats (single A) have home games that weekend.
Thanks for the info! It now might end up being a dual family vacation, with my best friend and his all of this is doubly helpful.
