Getting to know Raleigh, NC

Raleigh, the "City of Oaks," is part of what is known as the Research Triangle (along with Durham and Chapel Hill). The area's economy is strong, resulting in high per capita income and low unemployment. The Triangle area is a leader in the production of electrical machinery, electronic equipment, processed foods, pharmaceuticals and metal products. It's also well-regarded for its universities, including North Carolina State University, Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill. Locals will tell you Raleigh is pronounced "Rah-Lee," and if you're relocating, you'll find that southern pronunciation is an art. However you say it, Raleigh is a lovely place to call home, with a vibrant student community, positive job growth, and plenty of culture and entertainment.
