Raleigh, North Carolina is known as the “City of Oaks” for its many oak trees, which line the streets in the heart of the city. Founded in 1792, the city of Raleigh is named after Sir Walter Raleigh, who established the lost Roanoke Colony in present-day Dare County in Virginia. It is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Raleigh is North Carolina’s state capital and the second largest city after Charlotte. Raleigh covers a land area of almost 143 square miles and the Raleigh metropolitan area has an estimated population over 1,390,00.
Raleigh accolades include:
Research Triangle Park (RTP), established in 1959, created tens of thousands of jobs in the fields of science and technology. By the early 21st century, it became one of the fastest-growing areas of the United States. The “Triangle” nickname refers to three major university cities in North Carolina: Raleigh (home to North Carolina State University and is part of RTP), Durham (both Duke University and North Carolina Central University), and Chapel Hill (location of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill).
Downtown Raleigh is the location of many important buildings including museums and universities.
