Best Sellers in Raleigh, North Carolina By Becky Tyre

Raleigh is a city of contrasts evidenced by its location, midway between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Home to several major universities and museums, Raleigh blends the fun and excitement of a large city with the hospitality and charm of a small southern town. North Carolina’s capital city is located in the heart of the state’s Research Triangle and boasts a vibrant social, sports, cultural and arts scene. Along with an increase in culinary offerings, retail is alive and growing in the Raleigh area. Boasting 11 major shopping areas, the region is a mix of independent stores and major chains.
