Boasting one of the lowest crime rates in the nation and consistently ranked one of the Best Places to Live and Work by Money Magazine, you will love Cary as much as we do!
A suburb of Raleigh and the second largest community in Wake County with over 143,000 residents, Cary is one of the fastest growing towns in the nation. Because it has exploded over the past two decades, many of the homes and shopping centers are newer, while strict zoning and building regulations ensure that the quality of its housing developments remains high.
Cary is located directly south of Research Triangle Park. When RTP was founded in 1959, Cary was a sleepy village with a golden location. As major employers began to locate in RTP, Cary became a premier address for their employees. This has resulted in a highly educated population, with two-thirds of its residents having a college degree.
You’ll find Cary to be a family-friendly, dog-friendly, bicycle-friendly, active community with miles of greenways and a quaint, walkable downtown. There are three prestigious golf course communities: MacGregor Downs, Lochmere and Preston. The town is also home to the Cary Tennis Park, WakeMed Soccer Park and USA Baseball Training Complex, and many of its residential neighborhoods offer swimming, tennis and other activities. Plus, you’ll enjoy the outdoor concerts and events at the Koka Booth Amphitheater and the new Cary Arts Center.
Morrisville is located between Cary and the airport, and the line between the two communities can be fuzzy. Morrisville started as a small commercial crossroads near the airport, but the town’s convenient location has attracted plenty of residential development. A few Cary neighborhoods extend seamlessly into Morrisville, with many new developments springing up in the past decade. Although Morrisville shares some municipal services with Cary, it has a separate government. The town has grown to more than 18,000 residents, many working in RTP. Relocating families looking for a home in western Wake County should consider lesser-known Morrisville as a great option.
