Families love Morehead's summer schedule!

posted Wednesday June 15, 2011

A day at Morehead -- it's the perfect "stay-cation" for families in the Triangle and nearby counties.

Beat the heat with planetarium shows in Morehead's cool, dark GSK Fulldome Theater. Grab a front-row seat at the Science Stage, where things heat up with live science demonstrations! (Tip: The Science LIVE! presenter asks for volunteers -- here's your chance to put your Bill Nye and MythBusters skills to work!)

Check out our UNC and Chapel Hill neighbors, too. The Coker Arboretum is next door, the Ackland Art Museum is a five-minute stroll across campus and the North Carolina Botanical Garden is a short drive away on N.C. 54. There are dozens of fun restaurants on Franklin Street, and lots of families enjoy packing a picnic to enjoy in McCorkle Place, the park-like area of campus just west of Morehead.
