Forbes magazine recently ranked Raleigh Durham the #2 place in the nation to do business.

Unfortunately, a sidebar in the same section points out:

"Smart Growth America, a Washington, D.C. land use group, recently ranked the Raleigh-Durham area third worst of 83 metro areas overall for urban sprawl, just behind Riverside-San Bernardino, Calif. and Greensboro, N.C."


But, it's true. This town has way too many strip-malls, and getting anywhere requires way too much driving. Oh what I wouldn't give to be able to walk to (work | the grocery store | the bar). Just thinking about I-40 makes me want go to the bar right now.

Great Coffee Shops in Raleigh

Inside the New World Coffee House

Here are some of the great coffee shops I've discovered in Raleigh over the past year:

Each has free wireless internet, a cozy atmosphere, great music, and a cool clientele.

I don't inherently have anything against the Starbucks that one can find on every street corner. In college, I spent more time at the Starbucks located at the corner of Cedar and Fairmount than I did in class. That was in the olden times, prior to the rise of wireless Internet, however. Nowadays, the fact that coffee shop chains expect you to pay through the nose for wireless internet is enough to get them sacked. Not having to suddenly find myself surrounded by teenagers yapping on their cell phones is a nice added bonus.
