Leesville is a nice area to raise a family, though it is pretty segregated. The neighborhood I live in has maybe five to ten non-white families living there out of hundreds of families. It is a fairly expensive neighborhood, but there hasn't been any violence in the area in years. There are several good schools nearby. I mostly dislike this area because of the weather. Summer usually lasts from mid-may until late September. It is always hot and humid in the summer. Winters are nice, and there is very little snow, which sucks for me. There are things to do around the area like take nice long walks around. There are sidewalks beside most suburban streets. Brier Creek is nearby, so there are several stores and businesses you can go to. This area is mostly for families.

Leesville Township is a great suburban area, with a large variety of both people and places. Numerous small businesses operate within the area, with great reviews and fantastic service. The entire township is full of greenery, ranging from medians with bushes and small trees to large sections of untouched forest. If typical suburban life is what you desire, Leesville Township is a fantastic place to consider.
The overall experience of the triangle area is great. It's not exotic by any means but for growing up, it's hard to beat. The close proximity to both the beach and the mountains makes a change of scenery just a few hours drive away. If I were looking for a hospitable, relaxed atmosphere offering excellent job opportunities as well as quite a bit of history and culture, this would be one place that I would highly consider. To sum it up, if I could do it again, Raleigh would definitely be one of my top choices!
