The Tar Heel State has a number of small towns and cities that many consider great places to call home. Those looking to settle down or move away from big city life often times head the North Carolina. And now one city in the Tar Heel State has been named the second best place to live in the country.

Studyfinds.org recently published an article highlighting the “Best Places To Live In America In 2023.” As part of the study (by Lending Tree), experts found that many Americans don’t mind moving to another city.  In fact, the study found 40% of Americans seriously consider moving to a new location. Other studies found that the average American moves up to five times in their life. And 52% of people consider moving to a new city or their “dream job.’

And just where are they moving to? These five cities are considered to be the best places to live in America in 2023 and #2 on the list is North Carolina’s state capital – Raleigh!

North Carolina ranks high because of its “mild year-round climate” and growing foodie scene. And we can’t forget about the opportunity to cheer for the NC State Wolfpack.
