Burgeoning city in the decades long change from sleepy state capital to multi-cultural hub. You'll get good ole country folk in the store or restuarant with folks who came from overseas to study at the local universities or work at RTP. And ya'd better pick a team, be it UNC, NC State, or Dook (preferably one of the first two). We're still adapting to all the folks moving in from up North, and they're welcome so long as they don't tell us how to run things. From the 'burbs to the re-emerging entertainment and retail scene downtown, Raleigh has a lot to offer.
Anne: Why, thank you so much for helping us move in to this lovely home. It was just precious of you.
Elizabeth: Welcome to Raleigh. It would just be un-Southern not to be polite!

The capital of North Carolina. It can easily be divided by North Raleigh and South Raleigh - the two areas are polar opposites.

North Raleigh - upscale, wealthy, no crime, and there are amazing subdivisions (like Bedford for example), schools, parks, restaurants, and shopping centers. Best area for families. Mainly covers the zip code of 27614.

South Raleigh - ghetto. Lots of crime - people have been shot in broad daylight. Cheaper, lower class. The city's psychiatric hospitals and jail/juvenile/prison are located there. No good schools, bad place for families. A gang issue and delinquents walking around. Covers the zip codes of 27604 and 27610.
Person 1: Hey, I'm looking for a home in Raleigh. South Raleigh's homes are the cheapest.

Person 2: That's because it's a high crime area. Go to North Raleigh, where you won't get shot and you will have friendly neighbors.

A Raleigh. It is a very intelligent creature , who is highly equipped. They're also humorous and have a sly and perverted sense of humor. Might i add that they are extremely good looking , most of the time containing jew fros and large black-person lips. From the jacked abs and arms to the donk you will find this species to severly seductive. They are also the C.E.O and Boss of your mom , therefore beating A Jordan. Most of the time Raleigh's are dangerously uncoordinated and tend to make varying mistakes with there footwork and end up on their big ass. But most people find this adorable and/or cute. Which a Raleigh is. Being the cuddly and furry little sloths that they are , most tall girls whom of which are brunette like to keep them as their loving and loyal pets. Raleighs are also sweet adoring animals that are easy to love and tend to have an alluring atmosphere that is nearly impossible to escape but that's a good thing because Raleighs are the Shit. Concluding Raleighs are pretty legit , and hot , and cool , and loquacious , and they're sexy.
Girl : Woah , What was that?
Guy : That was a Raleigh.
Girl : Imma go get some

a boring little town full of suburbs. dont go there. go somewhere more dangerous like durham or winston salem. you might actually stay awake there. raleigh is full of preps too. people dont like white trash, but id rather be with a whole bunch of beer chuggin mullet wearers than the ibm engineer folks who flooded this town anyday. the white trash here is pretty open minded actually and fun. FUN!
bill: hey lets stop here in raleigh and get something to eat.
bob: or we could stop in smithfield and eat barbecue.
bill: sounds good to me.
