Hip and Hot!

October 16, 2009

wsjI just love it when my perception of things lines up with the ‘experts’! Check out what the Wall Street Journal had to say about Raleigh, NC.

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this place!!! I live in Cary…my home is an easy 15 minute drive to downtown Raleigh, 20 minutes from RDU (Raleigh Durham Airport) and about 30 minutes from RTP (Research Triangle Park). I can get to a Carolina Hurricanes game in about 15 minutes or to a Durham Bulls game in 40. The NC Symphony performs in downtown Raleigh. I have Kolka Booth Amphitheatre right here in Cary.

As this short article points out…we have amazing weather and an ever-increasing population of well educated young people who come here to attend one of the many top quality universities and then STAY!!! They stay because they’ve found good jobs, a relatively low cost of living and a quality of life they want. While Raleigh may be smallest city on the list…there’s no question about it, the best gifts come in small packages!
