We left New Hampshire in 2000 specifically to relocate to the Triangle and start a granite sales and installation business. I was in the telecom business prior, and when that went bust, we looked at different areas in the US and there was so much construction going on in the Raleigh area that we hedged our bets and BOOM! Here we are 16 years later and loving it! I think by far we love the beaches here most. Holden is our favorite because it represents a true, family friendly beach town, untouched by the huge growth and commercialism of some other beaches. My advice to newcomers is CALL JESSICA HOLLAND! Look around before you buy! There are so many distinct neighborhoods and areas of the Triangle. It’s important to know how the community you choose will best serve you and the lifestyle you’re seeking. Use the Triangle to your advantage and don’t be localized…there is so much to do and see in each city!
