Right now Raleigh is ranked #4 of best cities to live in in the United States. I have been living here since the summer of 1997 and doubt that I will ever leave. This place has grown so much as every season comes and goes. As you watch more buildings pop up and more schools being built you realize how prosperous it has gotten. You can go into a Starbucks, local grocery store, school or doctors office and you can see that this city is a melting pot. There are great restaurants from Vietnamese, Italian, Indian, Mediterranean, Jamaican, Puerto Rican, Mexican, Chinese, Korean, Japanese; you name it. More families move into Raleigh because it is a safe city for their children and there is a great education system here. We North Carolinian's are very happy and proud to call Raleigh, North Carolina our home!
