With the strongest growth anywhere in the south, Raleigh receives consistent accolades for it’s awesome lifestyle opportunities. It is routinely ranked in national business magazines as one of the best places to start a tech company, one of the best areas to relocate a company headquarters, and one of the best cities to consider a relocation. Raleigh and the greater Triangle Area is chock full of exciting technological, medical, and educational advancements, and it continues to produce top talent for ventures with worldwide connections. There are also numerous recreational amenities scattered throughout the area as well – things like over 100 miles of city-maintained greenway trails, the Neuse River system and it’s parks, professional hockey and soccer teams, and an abundance of colleges and universities (NCSU, Meredith, Shaw, Peace, Campbell, etc), and that’s just in the Raleigh city limits!
The Northeast Raleigh area has a fantastic concentration of lifestyle amenities. With everything from the Triangle Town Center Mall and the 5401 North project currently being constructed for your destination shopping choices, to the grocery options of Walmart, Kroger, and Trader Joe’s, your gas budget should shrink tremendously. The schools in Wake County are also among the best in the nation. With this near constant development boom, the investment in infrastructure has followed – there are currently plans to widen both Forestville Road and Mitchell Mill Road.
Great, but a fantastic lifestyle is more than a good job and things to do – what about Raleigh would make me want to live there?
