WHAT IS THE 'TRIANGLE' AREA ??
WHAT IS THE TRIANGLE?
 
The area known as the Triangle lies in the heart of North Carolina. It was so named because of three cities which form a triad and house three of the main universities found in this state. They are Duke University in Durham, The University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University in Raleigh. Located in the center of this triad is RDU Airport and Research Triangle Park. With all the growth the Triangle area has seen over the past two decades, areas outside of these boundaries including parts of Johnston, Franklin & Granville Counties are lumped in as well. Founded in 1959, Research Triangle Park is now home to over 35,000 full time employees. Covering over 7,000 acres, it is the largest research park in the United States with over 100 research and development facilities, some of which include: IBM, EPA, Cisco Systems, Sony/Ericsson, Nortel Networks, GlaxoSmithKline and the North Carolina Biotechnology Center.
