Located within the area is Research Triangle Park, home to several corporate and regional headquarters: Fidelity investments, Duke Medicine, IBM, Red Hat, SAS, Quintiles, GlaxoSmithKline and Cisco all have large presences, to name a few. New home construction is steady and there is a stable real estate market for existing homes. Compared to other markets, housing is surprisingly affordable.
The home of many creative and well-educated citizens, Raleigh has been lauded as a Best City for Business and Careers by Fortune magazine and a Best Place to Live in America by Money magazine. It provides its people and businesses with a world-class combination of economic vitality, low unemployment, tremendous educational opportunity, environmental quality, and exceptional quality of life. The park system offers a vast network of recreational green way trails that connect neighborhoods.
Thirteen institutions of higher education provide affordable and premium education, opportunities for adult and extension classes and a well-educated citizenry of students, graduates and faculty. The Triangle is also an area of tremendous resources where cultural and performing arts organizations thrive. Other major institutions include the North Carolina Museum of Art, North Carolina Museum of History, Carolina Ballet, American Dance Festival, Ackland Art Museum, Nasher Art Museum, Marbles Kids Museum, North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, More head Planetarium, and Carolina Performing Arts at UNC-Chapel Hill. There are film, music, dance and crafts festivals, local theater groups and touring Broadway shows.
