Businessweek has selected Raleigh as its best place to live in the country.
The Bloomberg magazine used more than a dozen different indexes to reach the conclusion that North Carolina’s state capital was the best among the country’s largest 100 cities.
“The city sports a high number of bars, restaurants, and cultural institutions as well as a thriving social scene, great parks, and good schools,” states Businessweek’s blurb on the city. “Raleigh reflects the cultural graces that go along with anchoring the so-called research triangle, home to North Carolina State University, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
“Of course, it’s also much more. The city offers a great deal on nights and weekends, from concerts and opera to the 30,000-sq.-ft. State Farmer’s Market. North Carolina’s state capital is tops in our book.”
Other North Carolina cities making the cut were Charlotte (20), Greensboro (31), Durham (37) and Winston-Salem (46). Read More.
