The Raleigh area has consistently been rated as one of Money Magazine's Best Places to live in the U.S. Raleigh and parts of its popular neighboring areas such as Durham, Wake County and Chapel Hill, make up the large metro area called The Triangle. The Triangle has been built around Research Triangle Park (RTP), a public and private planned research park housing national and international leaders in business, research, and government. Among the large employers in RTP are IBM, GlaxoSmithKline, Cisco Systems, Sony Ericsson, Nortel, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The Triangle is a great place to live, to work and to raise a family. In addition, The Triangle offers a wide array of excellent employment opportunities, a promising economic picture including a low unemployment rate and high per capita income, as well as, a low cost-of-living index.
The Raleigh area is only a three-hour drive to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains to the West and two hours from the Outer Banks and Atlantic Coast to the East. Adding to The Triangle's attraction is a strong sense of community, world-class educational opportunities (at Duke University, UNC Chapel Hill and other neighboring colleges), excellent health care, year-round good weather, arts and culture, parks and greenways, fine shopping and dining, and a diverse choice of beautiful, affordable housing.
Raleigh area housing choices range in scope from quiet established suburban neighborhoods and newly built golf communities to luxury condos near downtown Raleigh's rejuvenated arts and restaurant district and homes in more private, rural areas!
