Sports here. Sports there. Sports everywhere. That couldn’t be said any more perfectly when referring to the Triangle area of North Carolina. We are home to a wide variety of sports teams during every season of the year. With multiple college teams just minutes from each other, fall weekends are packed to the max with football Saturdays. There’s N.C. State University, Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill. Of course there is no forgetting to mention college basketball at these same schools. Then there’s the Carolina Hurricanes hockey games at the PNC Arena.
