When looking for the right place to hang your hat, consider Raleigh. Often referred to as a “city within a park,” Raleigh’s nationally acclaimed parks system includes more than 8,000 acres. With proximity to both the Blue Ridge Mountains and Atlantic Coast, it’s a short trip to the slopes or the beach, while golfers can take advantage of our mild climate nearly year round to improve their swing. But Raleigh is more than just a pretty place. With world-class performing arts, spectacular museums, top universities, cultural events, a growing tech sector, and outstanding health care facilities, Raleigh has it all – including the famous Southern hospitality.
