Welcome to Raleigh-Durham!
Situated in north central North Carolina, the Raleigh-Durham area is the heart of North Carolina and a location of significant intellectual and technological prestige. Raleigh, the state capital, is recognized for its high-tech industry and renowned research facility, Triangle Research Park.

Another major commercial center in the region, Durham is the home of Duke and North Carolina Central Universities, several scenic parks and an array of golf courses.
