I moved to Raleigh in 2000 from Los Angeles, and really enjoyed the small town feel of this capital city, along with its trees, great walkways and parks. You can often encounter up to five different languages in a day in Raleigh, which is another inviting feature.
A lot of people visit Raleigh to see if it's the city that they want to live in, work in, raise a family in, or go to school. It's great to gather good input when making such major life decisions. If you think you'd like some assistance in getting the lay of the land, figuring out where things are, the best ways to get around, the types of areas that might fit well with your lifestyle preferences, and insider information on good outdoor areas, places to eat, recreation ideas, and what Raleigh is about (from another outsider's perspective), let's head out on the town together. Two heads are better than one!
