It’s hard to find things to do that are fun for both kids and parents in Raleigh. There aren’t the big name attractions you may find in big cities like New York City and Orlando.
It forces you to look outside the norm and return to simple.
We’ve been there (and yes, we’ve heard complaining), but we’ve come up with a list of things to do in Raleigh that both children and parents will enjoy.

Now that we have a teenager, things are a little more challenging, as teens tend to grumble about EVERYTHING and lose their interest in everything but staying in their room, listening to music, and chatting to friends!
Not all of that is bad mind you, but we still love to get out and experience LIFE and this amazing city with our daughters. If you have a teen, please leave us your tips and suggestions in the comments. It takes a village to raise a child!!
