Raleigh: A Growing City

Raleigh is named by Forbes the fastest growing city in the country. Since 2000 we have experienced larger growth than most other areas. Why is that? From someone that has moved here my reason is that we get all four seasons, not too hot, not too cold and conveniently located between the mountains and the ocean.

Compared to areas up North it is affordable, the people are nice and the biscuits are good! Oh, and I forgot to mention how good the sweet tea is! Everyone greets you with a “hey, how are y’all?” and doesn’t beep the horn when you can’t find your street to turn on. Although, I must admit that is changing a bit and the traffic is getting heavier.

So come check it out, see what the Triangle is all about and if it should be your next place to call home.
