    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Raleigh is the capital city of North Carolina. It is the southern tip of the "Triangle" city region that includes Durham and Chapel Hill. Located between the coastal plain and the Piedmont area, Raleigh is a pleasant city of rolling hills surrounded by forested areas.

    Raleigh and its suburbs, especially Cary and Apex, have become a hot spot for growth, and the Research Triangle Park (which is shared with sister cities, Durham and Chapel Hill) has become a center for biotech research as well as high-tech firms.

    The quality of life in Raleigh is extremely high, with low cost of living, and a development plan that has kept ahead of the worst traffic problems. While not particularly filled with attractions, a visit to Exploris (the children's museum), and other places downtown can easily fill a weekend of activities.

    Exploris & Playspace have merged under the name Marbles Kids Museum.

    Raleigh has several colleges and universities including, Meredith College, Peace College, St Augustine's College, Shaw University and North Carolina State University (NC State). NC State athletic teams compete in the Atlantic Coast Conference and play football at Carter-Finley Stadium and basketball at the RBC Center. The RBC Center is also home to the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes, 2006 Stanley Cup Champions.

    • North Carolina
      One of the original 13 colonies first known simply as the Province of Carolina, North Carolina is a state filled with breathtaking natural beauty and a mixture of Native American and American histories blended together. One of the original Confederate states and the birthplace of modern flight with the Wright brothers, North Carolina has a blend of outdoor activities and major metropolises such as Charlotte and Raleigh, and is one of the most exciting destinations for the adventure-oriented travel.

      Most of North Carolina's charm comes from its natural beauty. From the Great Smoky Mountain National Park to the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, or the miles-long stretch of beaches that make up the Outer Banks and the Crystal Coast or places like Cape Lookout National Seashore, there is a wide range of visual excitement to be experienced within the state, regardless if you happen to enjoy seashores, mountains, forests, lakes and rivers, or simply hiking along secluded trails.

      In addition to all of this, North Carolina has the largest population of Native Americans east of the Mississippi River, with eight Native American Tribes recognized in the state, all of whom can trace their history back to long before the Europeans ever set foot on North American soil. While technically categorized as a Southern state, bordering Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Virginia, North Carolina is much more than just Southern. While agriculture remains a prominent industry within the state, especially with tobacco and soybeans, the national parks and coastal regions bring in plenty of tourists over the course of every year, and it’s easy to see why once you set foot in the state. Regardless if you are here for a historical visit in Raleigh or Charlotte, or to take advantage of the hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails in any of the various national parks and mountainous regions, or simply to bask in the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean view from Cape Lookout, North Carolina offers exactly what you need.
