This Triangle is so accessible, so quiet and so close that you might not even think to visit, but so lovable that once there, you may never leave.

The Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill Triangle has a robust high-tech economy. Business travel usually centers around Research Triangle Park, the world’s largest research park and home to over 100 cutting edge electronic and medical research firms, including GlaxoSmithKline and IBM.
