Raleigh, North Carolina
Close to Cary is our state capital. Home of NC State University, Raleigh blends the fun and excitement of a big city with the hospitality and charm of a small Southern town. North Carolina’s capital city is located in the heart of the state’s Triangle region and minutes from world-renowned Research Triangle Park, the largest research park in the world and home to industry giants like IBM Cisco, GlaxoSmithKline, Lenovo, Nortel Networks, Sony Ericsson and others.
Raleigh is a city of contrasts beginning with its location. Situated midway between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the beach and the mountains are never more than a two to three-hour drive away. With a vibrant social, sports, cultural and arts scene, multinational business and diverse recreational opportunities, plus a climate that’s mild year round, it’s easy to see why Raleigh and the surrounding region are consistently rated among the best places to live and work in the United States.
