The Raleigh Research Triangle Park (RTP) has shown early resilience in these unprecedented times against the financial repercussions of the COVID-19 virus. The Triangle market, which includes the cities of Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham, North Carolina, and features some of the world’s most innovative companies, shows no signs of weakening during the global pandemic.
Over 60 years ago, in 1959, the North Carolina Research Triangle Park (RTP) was created to combat the state’s perceived ‘brain drain’ of graduates from its top institutions. Graduates of North Carolina’s top tier universities - Duke, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University - would move geographically to find jobs in the Northeast. The aim was to encourage home-grown talent to remain at home, simultaneously signalling to companies in the engineering, science and research spheres to come to North Carolina for the talent.

Raleigh is a city blossoming from its adolescence to become one of the US’ most exciting cities. The ‘City of Oaks’, as Raleigh is affectionately nicknamed, has been an underrated gem for far too long and a recent resurgence in the city’s dynamism have made it an increasingly attractive place to be. With so many things to do, see and eat throughout the year, visitors are spoiled for choice. In the summer, the community spirit is such that boutique vendors take over Fayetteville Street every weekend, creating a summer fêtê feeling. From family-friendly to athletic pursuits, check out our guide below to the best activities in Raleigh.
Raleigh is a city saturated with talented chefs, many of whom have been recipients or nominees of the prestigious James Beard Award, but until recently the city’s food scene was underrepresented on a national level. Now, Raleigh is staking its claim as one of the hottest food cities in the US, finally discussed alongside the culinary rich cities of Nashville, Tennessee and Charleston, South Carolina. The influx and upskilling of talented chefs has created a scene heavily influenced by Raleigh’s urbanism and surrounding rurality. The Southern influence championed in this area of the US is combined with international techniques and flavours to create a unique food scene well worth experiencing.
