Affectionately named the "City of Oaks," Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina and is the second largest city in the state. Raleigh is perhaps most well-known as being part of the Research Triangle, the largest research park in the US. It’s home to North Carolina State University and just a short drive to Duke University, Wake Forest and Chapel Hill.

Being a major center for high-tech and biotech industries, Raleigh’s educational institutions and large arts community help contribute to an amazing food and music scene - these are just a few of the reasons as to why Forbes ranked this small-big city as the number three best places for business and careers.
