If you are thinking of relocating, let me invite you to think about the best places to live in North Carolina.

We have it all from some of the best coastline in America to the incredible Great Smoky Mountains and everything in between.

BankRate.com just compiled a list of the 5 Best Places to Live in North Carolina in 2022.

Contributing writer David McMillin said “we looked at data from the biggest cities in North Carolina to identify which places offered the kind of professional opportunities and personal enjoyment worthy of packing your bags and relocating your life.”

BankRate.com ranks Raleigh as the top place in not only North Carolina, but in the entire country!

“Raleigh again tops our list of best places to live in North Carolina — and our list of the best places to live anywhere in the U.S., as well,” McMillin said in his piece. “Apple last year announced plans for a new campus that will mean 3,000 jobs for the city, and the iPhone maker isn’t the only innovative company bringing leading engineering minds to the area. An analysis from LinkedIn also put Raleigh as the third most-resilient tech hub in the fallout from the pandemic.”
