What it’s Like to Live in Raleigh, NC:

Raleigh/Durham is a great place to live. There are lots of things to do, whether that be outdoor activities like hiking and biking, several lakes nearby for kayaking and fishing, and lots of events and activities happening every week. We are located near several universities and a NHL arena for sports fans. Raleigh is about 2 hours from both the beach and the mountains making for an easy day or weekend trip to both. We have an up and coming food and shopping scene, so there are lots of different restaurants and stores to choose from. The weather is beautiful, with mild temperatures most of the year.
