I've spent very little time on the East Coast, and zero time in the Southeastern part of the US, so that's what lead me to choosing Raleigh for today's post! I have some colleagues through work that live there and have heard from others that it's a pretty awesome city, so I thought it would be a great pick for the A to Z challenge. As the capital city of North Carolina, the Raleigh area is home to several major universities (NC State, Duke (in nearby Durham) and UNC at Chapel Hill. Founded as North Carolina's capital city in 1788 and incorporated in 1792, Raleigh is rich in history as well as several cultural arts centers.
