Once your Durham movers have finished helping you unpack, you and the family may be itching for some fun in North Carolina. Here are a few locations to add to your itinerary that'll help you unwind after your long journey to your new home.

Museum of Life and Science
The Museum of Life and Science is a knowledge-filled venue where you and the little ones can indulge your wild sides. At the Explore the Wild exhibit, you'll walk through six acres of lush North Carolina forests and wetlands, where you'll see black bears, lemurs and red wolves. If the kids have an interest in insects and arachnids, the Bayer CropScience Insectarium has a great collection of American Stag Beetles, Curly Hair Tarantulas and White Scorpions.

Wheels Fun Park
Lace up and glide away at 
Wheels Fun Park. After you and the kids skate around the slick hardwood floors, rev up the fun on some go karts or work on your putting game at the mini golf course. You can also hit the batting cages and swing for the fences, or let the little ones run and play on the jungle gym. The affordable prices and convenient hours make Wheels Fun Park a worthwhile Durham destination.

Durham Bulls Athletic Park
Nothing's more exciting than the electric atmosphere of a baseball game. Your new hometown's minor league team, 
The Durham Bulls, always puts on a great show, and the warm Southern weather is perfect for evening innings. The Bulls also hold events that the whole family will enjoy, like Camp Out Night and Faith and Family Night.

For special events, you can rent out part of the park and engage in fun activities like face painting, sumo wrestling, batting cages and a grand tour of the ballpark and clubhouse.
