Mungo Homes has over 60 years of experience helping homebuyers find the floor plan and community that’s perfect for them—but that also starts with finding the right city. One metropolitan area that we’re proud to build our homes in is Raleigh, North Carolina. The capital of the Tar Heel state is home to more than 460,000 people, featuring a distinct southern charm paired with city amenities and excitement. Check out everything Raleigh has to offer!

Things to do

This warm and friendly city boasts great local restaurants and breweries, entertainment options ranging from live music to sporting events, unique events, annual festivals and much more. Raleigh is packed with museums, art galleries, beautiful parks and lakes, places to shop and golf courses to enjoy. 

Looking for a day trip to take on the weekends? The central location of Raleigh means you’re just two hours from the beautiful North Carolina coast, but also two hours from the mountains. So whether you want to spend time on the beach or on a hiking trail, there’s plenty of beautiful outdoor attractions within close proximity. 

Fun for families 

Raleigh recently earned the number two spot on’s list of most family-friendly cities in the country. With amazing public schools, well-maintained parks and a safe, friendly atmosphere—we know that families with kids of any age will appreciate the resources available. 

Aside from the previously mentioned outdoor fun to help children learn more about nature, there’s plenty of kid-friendly activities the whole family can enjoy. Pack the car for a drive-in movie, make science and history fun at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences or the North Carolina Museum of History, experience hands-on learning at Marbles Kids Museum or get their energy out at the TreeRunner Adventure Park. Raleigh offers endless fun activities for families to choose from. 

Single life in Raleigh 

Just because the city is highly rated for families doesn’t mean singles of any age won’t love living here. Thanks to a flourishing economy, fast-growing population and an abundance of places to meet people, Raleigh ranked third on Apartment List’s Top 10 Metros for Dating in 2020. In Downton Raleigh, the unique food halls, Morgan Street and Transfer Co., draw couples, as well as larger groups, for their diverse range of food and drink offerings.

With a buzzing nightlife, singles in Raleigh can have fun with friends and meet new people just about anywhere. Although Raleigh ranks highly in every category on Niche, the nightlife earned a rare “A” rating.

After spending a large chunk of life working hard, retirees deserve to live somewhere that strikes a perfect balance between activity and relaxation. Older residents will enjoy the museums, restaurants and history in Raleigh, and golfers will appreciate the variety of courses designed for all skill levels. North Carolina is considered moderately tax-friendly for retirees, with exemptions on all Social Security retirement income.
