We've enjoyed living in Raleigh for years. I grew up here and after living in other places was excited to again call Raleigh home. There is so much to do and see and on top of the restaurants and parks and entertainment, there is a pretty stinkin' great climate and of course family close by.

Like I said, I really enjoy our home town and so do the kids and of course my husband does to. So, it was only a moderate surprise when Raleigh started racking up awards the last few years.

  • ranks Raleigh as the No. 1 Best Place for Business and Careers (They also list us as the Most Wired City and Safest City in America)
  • named Wake County as the healthiest County
  • #1 Best City in America (Raleigh, NC), September 2011

The list goes on and on. Now, this week, the latest one.

The healthiest place in America for women by Women's Health Magazine. Get this (on the day I went in for my physical!), "women follow pap smear and mammogram screening recommendations almost to the T."

It also says, "[Raleigh] has some of the highest rates of prevention when it comes to cancer."

Good stuff. Good stuff.

Kudos to my fellow Raleigh ladies!

PS - There are lots of news stories about this one. My favorites are at the Daily Mail and Women's Health Magazine.
