Raleigh was established as the Wake County seat and the capital of North Carolina in 1792 because its centralized location made it difficult to attack via the coast. Named for Sir Walter Raleigh of the Roanoke Colony that was lost in Dare County during the state’s early settlement days, this city is the second largest in the state. With an estimated population of 416,468 in 2011, those people considering a move to Raleigh retirement communities will discover the city to be one of the fastest growing in the country. Due to its humid and subtropical climate, residents of Raleigh retirement communities can enjoy relatively mild winters with hot summers.
The city is divided into several distinctive geographical areas that each have their own feel and vibe. In the downtown area, also known as Old Raleigh, the restored City Market offers a wide range of dining and shopping experiences. Other highlights include the Raleigh City Museum, the North Carolina Museum of History, the Fayetteville Street business district and the midtown business district of Cameron Village. The outer belt-line of Raleigh contains neighborhoods and the Crabtree Valley Mall, home to major retail chains and restaurants.
