Moving from the Windy City to Raleigh

There’s a lot to love about living in Chicago. But if you’re moving from the Windy City to Raleigh, don’t fret! There’s a lot to like about the City of Oaks, too! Check out what you’ll need to know about moving from Chicago to Raleigh and how U-Pack® can help you with a residential move.

What’s the weather like?

Say goodbye to the long, tough winters. You won’t have that in Raleigh! The city’s climate is warmer than Chicago with short, cool winters and hot, humid summers. In winter, the city sees about 70 nights that are at or just below freezing a year, but, unlike Chicago, it rarely experiences days where temperatures fail to rise above freezing. And while there’s occasional snow, the city only averages about six inches of snowfall a year — nothing like in the Windy City. 

How are schools in Raleigh?

Though Chicago has a robust educational system that serves more than 400,000 students, there are still plenty of educational opportunities in Raleigh. The city is home to 18 colleges and universities like North Carolina State University and the nearby Duke University in Durham and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Raleigh also provides education to school-aged children through the Wake County Public School System. The School System continually earns high marks and is among the nation’s leaders in end-of-course and proficiency tests, SAT scores and other performance-measuring criteria. 

What job opportunities are there in Raleigh?

Chicago is among the nation’s leaders for labor opportunities, but Raleigh has job choices, too! The city is a center for biotech and research and Forbes ranks it as the second best place in the country for business and careers. Other major industries in the city include finance, medicine, IT, education and retail. 

What are some fun things to do?

If you’re looking for entertainment, Raleigh has plenty of that, as well. Much like Chicago, there are plenty of things to do: enjoy outdoor activities at one of the city’s parks, take a trip to one of the city’s museums or art galleries, or see a show at the Durham Performing Arts Center. If you’re into sports, the student athletes at the nearby campuses of Duke, North Carolina and North Carolina State all compete in men’s and women’s sports. Raleigh also has professional teams in soccer, hockey and minor league baseball.
