Re: Moving to North Carolina (Raleigh Area)
You're very lucky to be moving to NC... there's so many to do... just a few hours west, you've got Asheville, Boone, Blowing Rock, the Blue Ridge Parkway, etc., etc. Just a couple hours east, you've got the Outer Banks and the Crystal Coast.
Don't forget about Chapel Hill in your new backyard. Most beautiful college town in the world! (I might be slightly biased...).
Welcome to NC!
