Great place to raise a family so that means not much of a hell raising party town. One hour to mountains, hour and half to Charlotte, hour and half to Raleigh, 4 hours to the beaches all on interstate highways. Excellent medical facilities and reasonable housing market. I would plan every bit of 2 hours from there to the RBC Center, but you might want to check out the Greensboro Generals of the ECHL which would be 30 minutes away. Good luck with your choice....
Sorry, Canes4me, but the Greensboro Generals haven't taken the ice in three years now - their last season was 2003-2004. There's been talk about a new ECHL team in Greensboro but as of now, it's not come to fruition.
