Raleigh Named #1 Best Place to Live and Work in America

For the second year in a row, magazine editors at Employment Review named Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill the number one “Best Place to Live and Work in America.”

Editors wrote that the Triangle “offers a great quality of life, a low crime rate, affordable housing, top-notch educational institutions, some of the best healthcare facilities in the world, a diverse industry base, and an environment in which it is ideal to raise a family.”

The article goes on to describe the area’s “thriving business sector,” its first-rate healthcare facilities, and that the region is “the premier address for relocating and expanding companies that want access to technology-transfer opportunities” through Research Triangle Park’s close ties to the three local universities. Another key ingredient in attracting employers and residents to the Triangle is its central location between the mountains and the beach and the high quality of life the area maintains.
