View Full Version : Chapel Hill Area with Kids

07-15-2007, 01:30 PM
We are headed to Chapel Hill for two weeks in August. My husband will be working during the day so I am starting to look for things that will be fun for me to do with the kiddos. Any suggestions for good parks? kid friendly attractions? restaurants? good local websites? I will have a rental car so I can do day trips, too. Any advice would be great.

Thank you!

We used to live in the Triangle area. Some nice kid-friendly attractions are:

The Museum of Live and Science in Durham
We liked the train ride and the outdoor play area.

Playspace Children museum in Raleigh
It's small and can be crowded, but it's also a lot of fun.

I also saw this one online:
We've never been there.

If you have all day, you may try the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro.
It's not that far away. A lot to see.

The Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham has a nice play area for kids next to the food court. It's free.

Hope this helps.
