Raleigh, North Carolina

Raleigh (pronounced IPA: /?r??li?/ raw-lee or IPA: /?r??li?/ rah-lee) is the capital of the State of North Carolina and the county seat of Wake County, USA. Raleigh is known as the gCity of Oaksh for its many oak trees. It is the second most populous in North Carolina, after Charlotte.[3] The estimated population on January 1, 2008 was 374,320[4] making Raleigh the 15th fastest growing city in the United States[5]. In February of 2008, the News & Observer, the major news daily of the region, cited that Raleigh had surpassed Minneapolis to become the 49th largest city in the U.S. In 2006, Raleigh population numbers surpassed the cities of Tampa, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and St. Louis. Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill make up the three primary cities of the Research Triangle metropolitan region. The regional name originated after the 1959 creation of the Research Triangle Park, located midway between the cities of Raleigh and Durham. The Research Triangle region encompasses the U.S. Census Bureau's Combined Statistical Area (CSA) of Raleigh-Durham-Cary in the central Piedmont. The estimated population of the Raleigh-Durham-Cary CSA was 1,635,974 as of July 1, 2007, with the Raleigh-Cary Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) portion estimated at 994,551 residents.[6] While almost all of Raleigh is located within Wake County, a small portion of the city extends into neighboring Durham County[7]. The towns of Cary, Garner, Wake Forest, Apex, Holly Springs, Clayton, and Knightdale are some of Raleigh's nearby suburbs. In 2008, Forbes magazine named Raleigh no. 1 out of the "Top 200 Best Places For Business And Careers."[8]
