Raleigh-Durham Ranking

The latest U.S. News and World Report Ranking cited the Raleigh-Durham area as the #7 Best Place to Live in the United States.

From the U.S. News and world report: "Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill are known for their research/technology roots and collegiate rivalries. This tri-city region (known as the Triangle) is luring nearly 80 new residents a day with strong job growth and a high quality of life.

Many people who call Raleigh-Durham home are young, friendly, diverse and educated. A strong sense of community is evident, as strangers are quick to provide a friendly conversation when standing in line at the supermarket.

The Raleigh-Durham metro area also encompasses beautiful green spaces, family-friendly museums and a growing art and music scene defined by monthly gallery walks, summer concerts and music festivals like Hopscotch."
