Why We Love Raleigh

Only a 30-minute drive from Legacy Jordan Lake is the culture, dynamic innovations, and timeless beauty that is Raleigh. It’s the capital of North Carolina and capital of our hearts in so many ways. Here are just a few of the reasons why we adore it.

BRING AN APPETITE! According to Zagat, Raleigh is “One of America’s hottest food cities.” The Foodie Scene here is booming with famous chefs and local heroes. It has everything for every craving: trendy American food halls with traditional and reimagined Southern foods, BBQ of all kinds, acclaimed craft breweries, sushi restaurants, Italian delights, global cuisine, and so much more. If you’ve also got an appetite for art, history, and shopping, you’ll be just as satisfied. Take a stroll downtown and discover all the creativity here.

INNOVATION & CAREER OPPORTUNITIES are very close to home at the largest research park in the United States — The Research Triangle. Hundreds of top employers have deep roots at this highly acclaimed work hub. Apple just announced in April 2021 that it is creating a campus here with 3,000 new jobs. North Carolina State University is also a prominent employer. Careers thrive in Raleigh/Durham area!

Raleigh is also NATURALLY FUN. There’s a bounty of scenic outdoor recreation here. They’ve got something for everyone including kayaking, hiking, canoeing, first-class golf, mountain biking, horseback riding, sailing, and the list goes on and on. It’s the perfect place to stay active and enjoy quality time together. The Neuse River Trail is a must with nearly 30 miles of picturesque enjoyment!
