I found Raleigh and vicinity to be attractive and full of potential. Of course there are negatives to any place and the people shouting negativity in the reviews below are the typical parasitic, welfare-abusing trash that have come to plague the area whining, moaning, complaining, and blaming about how they're not being given enough hand outs. There are very nice neighborhoods and apartments (usually overpriced) which offer any type of lifestyle you could want. I honestly feel bad for this city and natives because the low quality people coming primarily from Richmond and Atlanta have exploited the benefits and are slowly destroying the infrastructure taking advantage yet again of another decent city. The area has great higher education, known as the research Triangle with upscale hospitals, malls, libraries, parks, and museums. Outside of Raleigh you'll find natural outdoor activities like hiking, rock climbing, and biking. The local food is good, but like one person posted, it's not healthy food at all. There is access to some good health food stores though like Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Fresh Market and farmers markets which helps a lot. I don't blame NC natives for being resistant to outsiders and transient low lives. Raleigh has some great things going for it and to see low class people disrespecting it is appalling, unneeded, and unwanted. The city is constantly building and expanding, but there aren't enough jobs or moderately compensating ones to keep up with it. I will be honest in mentioning that job interviews here are biased, cliquey, and show blatant signs of nepotism; and this is coming from someone who holds two degrees as a white collar professional. As a whole, Raleigh-Durham is generic but offers good weather, great location, and hidden gems of community (you just have to look a bit harder to find them).
