Why Raleigh Is A Great Place To Live


You’ll never find nicer people than in Raleigh. Everyone is involved in their family life and their community, and they’ll always stop and say “hello.”

With average summer weather in Raleigh consisting of, well, sunshine, it’s pretty hard to complain. Even the winters are mild, so feel free to laugh at all your friends buried under blizzards in other states.

Not only is Raleigh a great place to bike, it’s also the perfect place to lace up the hiking boots and go out for a stroll. With local parks like the William B. Umstead State Park along with several mountains within driving distance, hiking in the Raleigh area never gets boring.

When someone is talking about the benefits of living in Raleigh, the great public school system will often come up. Not only are most of the area schools known for their great selection of extracurricular activities, students are often shown to score above average when it comes to national standardized testing.

In recent years, Raleigh has attracted tons of new urban artists looking to make a name for themselves. There are several rotating galleries around town, and street art is very common. If you prefer the classic “museum-style” experience, the Contemporary Art Museum is world-class.
