By now you have probably come to learn that there are many great reasons to call Raleigh, North Carolina home. Whether you are seeking better job opportunities, fleeing oppressive tax rates in New York and New Jersey, sick and tired of the crazy heat of Florida summers or seemingly endless winters of the Midwest, Raleigh has something for everyone.
After calling Raleigh home for nearly five years, myself an economic refugee from Michigan, I have discovered that Raleigh indeed offers all of the above, including a vibrant arts scene, great dining and otherwise abundant quality of life. In fact, the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce recently conducted a survey of newcomers (people who have relocated to Raleigh within the past three years) with children, of those respondents, 92% affirmed their decision to relocate their family to Raleigh by asserting that if given the choice they would make the same decision again. That’s a pretty strong endorsement when you consider that most people with children prefer to live near their extended families for support.
