Along with Durham and Chapel Hill, a growing area is the Research Triangle. Raleigh's North Carolina State University joins two other stellar research institutions—the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University in Durham—to form the intellectual nucleus of the Research Triangle.
Over the past decade and a half, Raleigh has prospered as an education, government, and research and development center. The city has a superior system of local parks and lakes, easy access to the ocean and the mountains, and a moderate climate, all of which encourage year-round outdoor activities. High-caliber health care services are offered by the many physicians who trained at the state's several top-rated medical colleges, fell in love with the area, and decided to settle in Raleigh.
Cultural activity abounds in the city, which offers a major symphony orchestra, an art museum with an outstanding collection of European and American paintings, and the world's premier modern dance festival. Residents and visitors enjoy an ever-widening culinary scene.
