We love the perfectly located topographical blank canvas in Raleigh.

Dix park is naturally contoured for viewing downtown, exercising, having kids burn off some energy or just relaxing all within a few yards walk to downtown or few yards drive to the interstate. An open canvas. With Raleigh being the capital and with the state capitol being somewhat sublime,  let's not miss this opportunity of capturing the colorful history of the state in some form. I would like to see landmarks throughout about our 100 counties; how they got their names, what their known for. The history of how and when Raleigh became the capital. Durham has Duke Gardens, Raleigh too can show off some of it's floral and fauna found throughout the state. 

What do you think?
