My name is Edward. I am 11 years old. I live in Durham, North Carolina. The city of Durham is in Research Triangle Park (RTP). That is why Durham is growing and developing faster every day. More people are moving in to Durham. The RTP has a lot of businesses in it. For instance, it has IBM, Nortel, Sprint, and more. There are three universities in Research Triangle Park. They are Duke, UNC, and N.C. State. These universities are very successful. Duke is #3, UNC is #27, and N.C. State is in the top 75 in the nation.
If you are looking to see sports, this is the city you're looking for. Not only are the universities good in sports, there are pro teams, also. The pro teams in N.C. are Carolina Panthers (NFL), Carolina Hurricanes (NHL), Charlotte Hornets (NBA), and the new baseball team in N.C. is the Minnesota Twins. I am happy to live in Durham, I have a lot of friends here. I don't want to live anywhere else except Durham!
