One of the best things about being an adult is that you get to choose where you want to live. If you feel like taking a job in a new area of the country because you need a change of pace, you are well within your rights to pick up and move across the country. You can even move if you just need a change of scenery for a while. If you are thinking of making a change and moving somewhere new, you might want to think about North Carolina. The cost of living in North Carolina is actually lower than a lot of other places int eh country and you can find great places with the best apartment amenities right now.
If you decide to move to take advantage of the cost of living in North Carolina then you might want to think about moving to Raleigh. According to a 2011 survey by the United States Census Bureau, the population of the city was only a little bit over 400,000. One of the benefits of a number like this is that you get all the benefits of living in a larger city, but you do not have to worry about the over crowded nature that you also usually find in the bigger cities in the United States. One of the other cool aspects of the city of Raleigh is that is is one of the only cities in the country that was specifically planned and built in order to be a state capital and is home to the famous Hunter’s Tavern which is frequented by state legislators. This kind of careful city planning will more than likely cut down on your daily commute time.
You might also want to look into Raleigh apartments for rent if you are a huge fan of the internet and all of your smart devices. The city was recently ranked by Forbes as the number one most wired city in the country. This can come in handy if you are planning on doing a lot of business out of the office in your new city.
Once you find a rental property that is perfect for you, and probably pretty affordable since the cost of living in North Carolina is incredibly reasonable in comparison to other big cities, you should make sure to take a trip to the J. C. Raulston Arboretum. This is a beautiful eight acre botanical gardens that is open year round and will be the perfect place to spend a lazy evening with someone you love.
