Today we will visit sunny California again and look at one of the lesser known cities. Most of you will certainly think of metropolises like Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego or smaller cities like Santa Barbara, Fresno or Sacramento.
Today's next chapter of exploring Raleigh begins with a visit to the Marbles Kids Museum, where adults are sure to enjoy. The museum is full of various interactive exhibits. For example, on such a "music playground" TreeTunes, children can create various musical melodies and try out instruments such as a xylophone, banjo, bells and more. In the STEMOsphere room, children can explore the secrets of math and put together various puzzles. In the children's garden they will learn how to take care of plants and nature. The icing on the cake is a cinema hall with IMAX technology with a screen more than 21 meters wide, where popular educational films are shown.
After our short excursion in South Carolina we will head to North Carolina, which is the 28th in the US in terms of size and 9 in terms of population. Today we imagine the city of Raleigh.

Today's trip will take us to the American state of Indiana. Our goal is Fort Wayne, the second largest city in the state, brimming with places to go.
Today's continuation of the trip to the most interesting places in Atlanta will begin with a visit to a major cultural monument - the Fox Theater, which was built during the 1920s as Yaraab Temple Shrine Mosque in the spirit of overly opulent Arabic style. When the building was opened to the public, newspapers wrote of it as "a picturesque building of even worrying grandiose beyond imagination."
Atlanta is the center of the American South from different perspectives. Originally the city was a military base, later it became an important railway junction and thanks to trade it experienced a great boom. During the American Civil War, this was an important southern base, but was almost razed to the ground after being occupied by General Sherman. It was the destruction of Atlanta caused by Union troops that inspired Margaret Mitchell to set her epic Gone with the Wind, which later won the Pulitzer Prize.
Baton Rouge is the capital of the southern state of Louisiana. The city itself lies on the famous Mississippi River and is anchored in the US battleship USS Kidd, which forms the war memorial of the same name.
