Well, the triangles probably the only area in NC i'd personally want to live in, its like a weird liberal bubble and you leave and realize you live in North Carolina. Traffic can get bad on 40 during rush hour, but honestly it's not as bad as living in any other major metropolitan area, theres just like no public transportation really or any of that. Some parts of raleigh and durham are still terrible, but theres also a lot of gentrification going on (good or bad), but all in all its a very convenient area to live in. I live in cary, so if i head towards durham or raleigh, I can hit 3/4 targets in either direction if I'm going toy hunting. Really the only toy places around here that aren't big box would be Crowemags, the Crowemag booth at the fairgrounds only open on weekends, and theres a new little shop called Ogo Toys that opened up inside the Ultimate Comics in cary by where Grand Asia is.
