Raleigh, NC, US – Video

Raleigh was named for Sir Walter Raleigh, the famed English soldier, adventurer, and poet. It is the capital of North Carolina and home to North Carolina State University, two historically black universities, Shaw and Saint Augustine, and two women’s colleges, Peace and Meredith.

With a plethora of things to see and do, Raleigh is a wonderful place to live, work, or visit.

Raleigh is known as the “City of Oaks” for its many oak trees.

Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill make up the three historically primary cities of the Research Triangle metropolitan region. The regional nickname of “The Triangle” originated after the 1959 creation of the Research Triangle Park, primarily located in Durham County, four miles from Downtown Durham and encompassed on three sides by the City of Durham and roughly midway between the cities of Raleigh and Chapel Hill and the three major research universities of NC State University, Duke University, and UNC-Chapel Hill.
