Raleigh: One of the South's Best-Kept Secrets

This is the largest city in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill "triangle". This entire metropolitan area is a powerful magnet for well-to-do, well-educated people, with one of the highest concentrations of PhD's per capita in the entire country.

Raleigh has a fine selection of museums, parks, and cultural activities, which I barely had time to sample. Someday, I hope to get back there. Here are just a few of the things that it has to offer.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:An impressive selection of things to do
