The Triangle is full of great places to live which is why thousands of people relocate to Raleigh-Durham annually. But there are a few areas that have captured the interest of Millennials and these twenty and thirty somethings are stopping at nothing to find their perfect home in these Top 5 locations.
Coming in number one on the list is the Town of Apex. Who would have thought that a small town right outside of Raleigh could best the metropolitan areas? But when you visit Apex you begin to see why. Apex not only has great neighborhoods and awesome schools it also has charming boutique shops, great bars, and restaurants. Apex is also centrally located between the Research Triangle Park, Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and Downtown Raleigh. Commuters can get to any of these locations in less than twenty minutes.
Holding down the number two spot is Downtown Durham. The urban renaissance has completely taken over Durham’s downtown market and Millennials love the artsy culture that Durham provides. Downtown Durham is also an entertaining hub with places like the American Tobacco Campus where you can attend a concert while enjoying dinner at one of the local restaurants, attend a baseball game at the Durham Bulls Stadium, or even take a short walk to the Durham Performing Arts Center for a play.
Raleigh’s downtown continues to be a primary destination for Millennials. The attraction to Downtown Raleigh has a whole lot to do with the nearby amenities. The Red Hat Amphitheater is a main attraction where people from all over North Carolina come to listen to top music artist like Mary J. Blidge, Maxwell, and Charles Esten to name a few. But Millennials also love the idea of leaving their downtown condo and walking down to the nearest restaurant for lunch or to enjoy one of the frequent festivals that go on most weekends.
Coming in quietly at number four is Garner. The small town that sits just south of Downtown Raleigh has become a top destination to live for Millennials. Many new home communities are sprouting up around Garner and the White Oak Shopping Center is becoming a shopping and dining mecca. Garner is also just minutes from Downtown Raleigh and centrally located to the I-40 Beltway for commuters.
The largest mass of land inside Wake County is North Raleigh and many Millennials are occupying every square inch. The Brier Creek area is one of the most drawing locations for Millennials as Brier Creek offers plenty of shopping and dining nearby. It’s also perfectly located to the Research Triangle Park and RDU Airport. Only about five minutes! But as you move east into North Raleigh you’ll find homes with more square footage and larger home sites.
In addition to these 5 awesome locations there are other great places to live inside the Triangle. But if you want to be where the Millennial action is you’re going to want to start here.
