Raleigh, NC: The City of Oaks

Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, is a city known for its oak tree-lined streets, temperate weather, and stellar economy. Consistently listed as one the top, best, or fastest growing cities by publications such as Forbes, CNN Money, and Bloomberg Business, Raleigh has much to offer its residents. Several exceptional universities, a nearby park dedicated to research, a busy international airport, and professional sports teams are just a few reasons to make Raleigh your home.

Raleigh Has Growth in Mind

Recent completion of a major part of its outer beltway and construction of the external circle of highway expected to be completed in 2015, ensures that Raleigh is keeping its mind on future expansion. While most cities of comparable size, in other parts of the country, do not even have an ‘inner’ beltline, Raleigh has almost completed its ‘outer’ beltway. Government officials understand that in order to grow, the city must have efficient methods of moving people from home to work, and to schools and shopping.

Which Raleigh, NC Neighborhood is for You?

Raleigh is dotted with several magnificent neighborhoods with well maintained, manicured lawns, and mature tree lined streets. Sections of Raleigh are often referred to as “inside the beltline,” or “outside the beltline,” with older historical neighborhoods resting inside the inner beltline, Interstate 440. These homes are highly-sought after not only for their historic relevance, but their southern architectural beauty.

Modern homes are available in neighborhoods in the ‘outer beltway’ area of Raleigh. There are several major thoroughfares that radiate out from the downtown area. Glenwood Avenue is a favorite among those who are seeking a traditional older, ‘urban’ setting without sacrificing large private lots. Six Forks has a plethora of neighborhood options and with the recent, and continuing, development of North Hills, this area has become quite affluent and desirable.

Downtown Raleigh: Quaint, Urban, and Alive with Activity

Downtown Raleigh offers residents everything that you’d expect in a bustling urban setting, art galleries, restaurants, parks, and museums - two of the best North Carolina has to offer, in fact, the NC Museum of Natural Science and NC Museum of History. North Carolina State University and Shaw University are both within the inner beltline and are downtown adjacent. Cameron Village and Glenwood South are two fantastic shopping and dining experiences that cannot be forgotten when speaking of the downtown area of Raleigh.
