The Triangle region of North Carolina is widely considered one of the best places in the United States to live, conduct business, find jobs, be single and stay relaxed.
Made up of the geographic triangle formed by Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, the Triangle also consists of a number of fast growing towns like Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Wake Forest and Morrisville. At the business heart of the Triangle beats Research Triangle Park, the largest research and development park in the nation that is called home by many of the world’s most recognized life sciences and information technology brands, like Glaxo SmithKline, Bayer CropScience, BioGen Idec, IBM, Cisco Systems, BASF, DuPont, CREE and the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
The Triangle is flanked by North Carolina’s incredibly scenic and highly-touristed coastal region to the east and the rugged slopes and peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains to its west. Both regions, offering endless activities and reasons for living, can be reached in only a couple of hours via I-40, which runs straight through the Triangle and serves as our primary commuting artery.
Keeping the highly-educated workforce of the region, well, highly educated, are three of the most respected universities in the country, NC State, Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill. Raleigh and Durham also offer a host of outstanding smaller schools like NC Central, Meredith, Shaw, Peace College and St. Augustine’s. Both Wake and Durham counties also boast terrific community college programs that funnel thousands of employable residents into the regional workforce.
