As someone who grew up in Durham in the 70's and watched the major decline as Durham's two largest employers closed their doors; the transformation is beyond what anyone could have hoped. My parents, big Durham boosters, tried unsuccessfully bringing in capital and tenants into downtown in the 80's and 90's to no avail.

When I came back to the Triangle, I relocated to Raleigh, partially because of the better Wake County Schools. So as big a Durham booster as I am, please pay equal tribute to Raleigh! It too is cool, hip and growing. Check out the HUB, our new entrepreneurial center. Glenwood South has many start-ups, and Citrix, after purchasing FileShare, a huge local success story, is building a cool new campus connecting the Glenwood South and downtown corridor.

We've got great restaurants and chefs, great museums, and of course, the Carolina Hurricanes, the Railhawks, the only two professional sports teams in the Triangle. RTP is lucky to have two great cities!
