Raleigh makes two more top 10 lists

WSJ's Marketwatch reports a survey by RelocateAmerica that places Raleigh as the #4 city in which to live in the US.  Austin came in at #1; the rest of the list in order: Grand Rapids (!), Boulder, Dallas, Greenville SC, Augusta, Boise, Omaha, and Oklahoma City. 

Raleigh was cited for high tech jobs, outstanding universities, a solid public schools system, wonderful weather, and a lively arts scene.  Cary is listed separately as one of the top 100 cities, along with Wilmington and Charlotte.

Forbes rates Raleigh #2 in the country (after Austin) for being best positioned to grow and prosper over the next 10 years.  The ratings are based on recent job growth as well as demographics, including in-migration and education.
