Consistently ranked as one of the best regions in the country to live, the Research Triangle of North Carolina is made up of the communities of Durham, Chapel Hill and Raleigh, which mark the points of the triangle. These communities serve as an anchor for the surrounding communities and neighborhoods that make up the region.
The Triangle is very blessed with two important things that very few other places in the country can beat. One is we have many institutions of higher learning both public and private include Duke University (Durham), University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Chapel Hill), NC State University (Raleigh) and scores more. Our population and industry is educated and diverse.
Additionally, we are one of the best regions, if not the best in the country for health care with Duke, UNC and Rex Hospitals and medical facilities. Both Duke and UNC are not only hospitals and medical facilities but teaching hospitals that offer education, research, opportunities and hope for families across the globe with rare and complicated illnesses.
This region is also very well known in the country for our technology base, much of which is located in Research Triangle Park which extends into Durham, Wake and Orange Counties. Durham is often rated in the top 5 in the country for Biotechnology.
With year-round mild climate, cutting-edge healthcare, world-class cuisine, arts, music, abundant recreational opportunities, and favorable cost of living, you just can’t go wrong by choosing to live in The Triangle!
