    Steeped in history, the sprawling 5579-acre (2257-hectare) space that is William B. Umstead State Park, was originally an enchanting wilderness. Christened after the city governor as an ode to his dedication to conservation, the park was previously divided into Crabtree Creek and Reedy Creek. Established in 1937, it is located within stumbling distance of Research Triangle Park, under the towering shadows of Raleigh and Durham. A great respite from mundane life, enjoy a plethora of recreational activities on offer. Take a horseback ride or bridle trail through lush flora of pines and hickory with scattered picnic spots and camping sites punctuating the landscape. Paddle across the lake in a rented rowboat or canoe, and fish out bass and bluegill. The picturesque getaway exudes tranquility and is a popular rejuvenating spot for locals.
