Raleigh-Durham lands in top five best places to live
U.S. News & World Report placed four Southern cities in the top five of its ranking of the Best Places to Live, with Raleigh-Durham taking the #2 spot. The report cited the Triangle's strong job growth and high quality of life as the primary reasons for its second place ranking—and as Triangle residents ourselves, we couldn't agree more!
U.S. News—an American media mogul that's globally recognized for its rankings—factored the cost of living, crime rates, job market, quality of education, and more into its decision.
