We are visiting Raleigh/Durham for a weekend to see if it's a good fit. What kinds of things should we do?

We are visiting the triangle area to evaluate its potential as a place to live rather than a tourist destination - so while I'm excited about museums and attractions, etc, those are kind of on the back burner.
We will be driving around the neighborhoods we're considering. (Forest Hills, Watts, Duke Park, Northgate Park, etc in Durham. Not sure about Raleigh at all, maybe Mordecai, Oakwood area - suggestions?) We will be walking around both downtowns. We'd like to visit some cool little shopping centers (Brightleaf? Cameron Village?) Our hotel is in the RTP area.
What are some activities, locations, shops, restaurants, etc that we absolutely must do or visit to get a good sense of life in the triangle? Any other advice?
If you haven't been in the triangle area but have moved to a new city, what did you do to evaluate whether it was a good fit beforehand? Or what do you wish you would have done?
