The City of Oaks

Not only is Raleigh the capital city of North Carolina, it's the City of Oaks and home to some of the most beautiful parks in the Triangle. Outdoor recreation is a year-round trend in Raleigh, which regularly hosts events like athletic triathlons and marathons, arts and culture festivals, musical performances, and so much more. It's impossible to be bored in Raleigh, when there's something going on practically every weekend - if not every day!

"Even though it has all the big-city amenities, like a spectacular downtown and renowned universities, Raleigh has the friendly feel of a small town. Plus everything, from the ocean to the mountains, is just a few hours away."
