  • Harvey B. Gantt Center
    Founded in 1974 as the Afro-American Cultural Center, the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts+Culture stands as an evolving tribute to the Africans and African Americans who have contributed to American culture. Among this group is prolific architect and museum namesake Harvey B. Gantt, who has worked tirelessly to create an equal-opportunity "New South City." Size: 46,500 square feet of paintings, sculptures, films, performance art, and music Eye Catcher: the central glass atrium, where stairs and escalators at both ends form an allusion to Jacob's Ladder and the ideal of advancement through education Permanent Mainstay: The John and Vivian Hewitt Collection of African-American Art, which includes 58 works from 20 artists, on display through January 19, 2015, then removed for temporary rest The Building: the exterior design was inspired by the quilts of the Underground Railroad era as well as woven textile patterns from West Africa Pro Tip: photography is only allowed in the Grand Lobby, the Performance Suite, and the Rooftop Terrace While You're in the Neighborhood: check out the other attractions that make up the greater Levine Center for the Arts

  • Triangle Glides
    The mobile historians at Triangle Glides lead tours through the most exciting locations in Raleigh's past and present. They spin tales as groups glide past modern and historic landmarks on the Downtown Discovery tour or learn of riots, duels, and public hangings during the more macabre Raleigh's Darkest Secrets tour. In other tours, groups travel into the 19th-century neighborhood of Oakwood and enjoy the lush grounds of Oakwood Cemetery, the final resting place of nearly 1,500 Confederate soldiers. This sort of exploration is the foundation of Triangle Glides, but its Segways are only part of the adventure. To explore the area's waters, the company sells standup paddleboards. Resident instructors can help newbies master these watercraft during seasonal paddleboard lessons on nearby Lake Wheeler, where paddlers find calm waters surrounded by leafy forests. Triangle Glides also sells electric bikes, fitness Trikkes, and bootless skates, and leads photography workshops.

  • Elsewhere
    Elsewhere goes by many names, including "living museum" and "thinking playground." However, it's easier to grasp what the erstwhile thrift store is all about via a video tour. The space brims with artistically curated clutter—from animal knicknacks to a floor-to-ceiling, cyclone-shaped statue made of dolls. Members receive special discounts on tickets and other surprises at Elsewhere's 6th Annual Fundraising Extravaganza, The Last Great Winter, on Saturday, October 11, 2014. Mission: To creatively repurpose objects from the past through storytelling, visual art, and other disciplines. The curators host an array of resident artists who help them do just that. Size: In stories? Three. In objects? Innumerable. The building's contents were amassed by the thrift store's original owner, Sylvia Gray, who shopped at Salvation Army and Goodwill twice a day. Eye Catcher: Before you even get inside, you'll probably notice the three rope-and-wood swings hanging from the eaves. Permanent Fixture: The fabric workshop. It's stocked with bolts of fabric in myriad colors and patterns, just like the inside of any quality rainbow. Don't Miss: The resident artists share a huge dinner with the public at 7 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. Let them know you're coming 24 hours in advance, pitch in $5-$10, and they'll save you a seat.

  • Old Salem Museums and Gardens
    Old Salem Museums & Gardens whisks visitors to the cozy streets of a reconstructed 18th-century Moravian town that encompasses 100 restored and reclaimed buildings and expansive, pristine gardens. As they stroll through the 90-acre homage to early Americana, visitors can interact with hands-on activities, such as the German paper-cutting art of Scherenschnitte or the colonial tradition of libeling a governor with accusations of actually governing. Old Salem's horticultural marvels include the Miksch Garden—a living illustration of Moravian subsistence farming—and the Family Gardens of Salt Street, which demonstrate the innovative practice of seed saving. In addition to year-round attractions, special exhibits rotate through town, celebrating momentous occasions, notable people, and game-changing presidential pets. After traversing the grounds, visitors can peruse souvenirs at a number of gift shops or sidle into Winkler’s Bakery for a piece of renowned Moravian sugar cake.

  • Bellan Arts
    Fueled by her passion for performance art, fashion, and choreography, Durham native Anjanée N. Bell founded Bellan Performance Centre as a philanthropic organization, and as a destination for those individuals with interests as diverse as her own. The disciplines and fundamentals of dance weave a common thread through the facility's many endeavors, which include aspirations to emerge as a performance-art community by way of engaging live shows. Off stage, Bellan provides various educational programs and fitness classes that encourage participants of all ages to get up and move, even if they lack the experience and spring-loaded toes of many professional steppers.
