Introducing The Triangle

Located in the central North Carolina region known as the Piedmont, the cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill form a rough triangle. Three top research universities – Duke, University of North Carolina, and North Carolina State are located here, as is the 7000-acre computer and biotech office campus known as Research Triangle Park. Swarming with egghead computer programmers, bearded peace activists and hip young families, each town has its own unique personality, despite being only a few miles apart. And everyone here – we mean everyone – goes crazy for university basketball.
