Raleigh is the capital of the state of North Carolina and is known as the "City of Oaks" for its many oak trees. Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill make up the three historically primary cities of the Research Triangle metropolitan region. The regional nickname of "The Triangle" originated after the 1959 creation of the Research Triangle Park, located between the cities of Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham.
The competitive nature of the area is shown by its professional teams. The National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes franchise moved to Raleigh in 1997 winning the Stanley Cup in 2006 and the Durham Bulls, the AAA minor-league baseball team made internationally famous by the movie Bull Durham, play in the city of Durham.
