You’ll hear it called by many different monikers; The Triangle, RDU, Research Triangle Region, RTP and then of course each of the distinctly different cities have different nicknames. The Triangle is comprised of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill as its foundation. Research Triangle Park grew out of the three pre-eminent universities in the region; NC State in Raleigh, Duke University in Durham and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill banding together to stem brain drain in the 1950’s and 1960’s. What happened boggles the mind; a world class, sprawling research and development campus and population that is, in simple terms, amazing.

Raleigh, the largest of the three communities is the state capital. It is also the largest Triangle city with 402,000 people. Durham follows with 262.751 and Chapel Hill is the smallest with 48,715. Each of the points of the Triangle is unique and distinctive and yet helps make up a far greater whole.

Raleigh offers a rather provincial Old South feel outside of downtown. The arts thrive in this city as does collegiate and professional sports. Raleigh is home to the Carolina Hurricanes a NHL franchise and truly the Triangle is nuts for hockey. This is a function of so many northern transplants. Raleigh offers acres upon acres of greenway for running, biking, hiking and walking and hundreds of acres of parks for outdoor living.

Durham is urban, trendy, edgy, fun, funky and a top food destination and Durham’s Performing Arts Center is rated one of the best in the nation. Here you can see first run Broadway shows on tour. Durham is home of the Durham Bulls baseball team made more famous by the movie “Bull Durham.” Durham has more active artists than any other community in North Carolina. Durham, the city of medicine, the Bull City also has more physicians per capita than anywhere else in the United States. Duke Medical Center has over 1000 patient beds and people come to the region from all over the world for first rate medical care.

Chapel Hill is the quintessential college town. The feel is friendly, liberal, accepting and forward looking. Chapel Hill offers a world famous hospital too, UNC Hospitals. Life in Chapel Hill centers on the University of North Carolina; the oldest public university in the United States and where tens of thousands of students attend school there. Chapel Hill is often referred to as the “Southern Part of Heaven” and the town like all of the other communities in the region has an abundance of highly acclaimed eating establishments.

Weather; our weather is temperate. We get four distinct seasons, winter is typically mild with little snow, spring is divine, summers are hot and humid and fall is divine.

Recreation; boat of Falls or Jordan Lakes, swim there, jet ski there, fish there too. Enjoy some of the best golf courses in the country. Walk our trails, ride our trails dip your feet in the Eno or Neuse Rivers. Come for a festival, we have them year round. Visit Durham Performing Arts Center or take in a basketball game at Cameron Indoor Stadium, The RBC Center, Reynolds Coliseum or The Smith Center. Anyone who’s been here for awhile realizes quickly that basketball gets into your blood and during March madness the atmosphere in the Triangle is electric. Then too, sip coffee in an outdoor café or visit the NC Museum of Art, the Ackland Museum of art or the Nasher in Durham.

Here you’ll find an enlightened and engaged population in touch with their past and eager for their future. Jobs are well paying and easy to find too.
