Cypress Stories

Live Independently
An Active Community


The City of Oaks. And of Food. And Learning. And Golf…
Raleigh is a vigorous city and the state capital of North Carolina. As part of The Research Triangle, Raleigh is a center of research, technology, learning and culture. Several major universities and colleges call the Triangle home, including North Carolina State University, Duke University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Raleigh’s much lauded restaurant scene, world-class shopping and famed museums combined with nationally ranked golf courses and a variety of outdoor activities inspired Travel and Leisure Magazine to name Raleigh one of America’s top 10 favorite cities.
