I’ve seen some threads re: this subject but I would like to get some more current replies and suggestions.

I’m a 30 something female from New York City. I’ve been offered a job in Raleigh in the triangle area. Before making a major change in location and lifestyle I want to get folks opinion on where to live in an area that isn’t all about new families, where is it easy to meet single men and how is the social life.

I’m planning a 3 day trip to the area and I have a few questions that I’m hoping some of you can answer:
1. Which neighborhoods should I check out while in town (for potential places to live)?
2. What are a few good spots to hang out while I am there? (I usually like bars with live music somewhere that people are friendly and interact and outdoor activates such as bike riding.)

Also, can anyone give a good suggestion for a hotel to stay at with in short distance to "hub" of activity.

Thank you in advance for your help!

You might like downtown Raleigh. There are lots of restaurants and night life in that area. Some places are Glenwood South, Cameron Village, and Five Points. It is pricey, I'd say about $250.00-(average) per sq. ft if you buy something, but many like it and find it quaint yet close proximity to parks as well. There is the Holiday Inn Brownstone hotel on Hillsborough Street that is in close proximity to restaurants and bars (there are many more hotels in all different price ranges). Hope you enjoy your stay!

My advice is not to move to Raleigh--especially if you're single (just my opinion). However, if you're tired of big city life then this is the perfect place for you. The area is great for outdoor activities, so you'd love it here if you're into that. The bright side about the triangle is the food, very diverse for a smaller metro area.

Go to Downtown Raleigh. Moore Square, Cameron Village, Glenwood South. Take a walk around on a Saturday afternoon and you will get a good feel of the demographic and activity index

If you're from NYC and you liked it there, than downtown or glenwood south or cameron village would be the place to live. If you want some elbow room, head for the sprawlburbs.
