What do you like about Raleigh?
Still very much a growing city, trying to leave behind its southern roots, with mixed sucess.
What do you dislike about Raleigh?
No authentic (and good) asian, mexican, french, cuban, and most other ethnic foods. Southern food is like an evil conspiracy manufactured by greedy local cardiologists.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
The downtown area is nice for a week then makes you want to move out of state.
How expensive is it?
Still very cheap. In fact everything here is cheap and BIG.
Is it safe?
very safe relative to cities of similar size (the ones that do not include farm animals in its census)
How is the weather?
Very nice winters, the anytime else, going outside is like walking into a two man sauna.
Additional thoughts?
Good place to live and die (hopefully quickly) if you are retired, over fifty, or have just given up in life.

What do you like about Raleigh?
The visual beauty, plentiful sidewalks, and friendliness of residents.
What do you dislike about Raleigh?
The inane conservatism (prayer in city council meetings?), the ugliest downtown on earth, very little to do here.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? North Raleigh where you're close to everything!
How expensive is it?
Moderate. it used to be more expensive than Atlanta, but they are about the same with regard to housing. The food is more expensive than Atlanta's.
Is it safe?
OK, but not as safe as it should be considering it's size and lack of amenities.
How is the weather?
Mild winters, hot hot summers, and often dry. snow 1 or 2 days most winters.
Additional thoughts?
Too much religion with lots of roads named after churches. Too many slow drivers (old people) concentrated in one area. No vibrancy or energy. Very boring.
