Cary is the seventh largest municipality in North Carolina. Cary has evolved into a rapidly growing alternative to big-city living. With its proximity to the state’s capitol of Raleigh and the Research Triangle Park, it is an ideal choice for commuters. Because of its excellent school system, 30 parks and greenways throughout the area, abundant shopping area and small-town atmosphere, it’s no wonder Cary was named both the “Best Place to Live in The South” and “5th best Place to live in the U.S.” by Money Magazine in 2006.
The town of Cary continually ranks as one of the top 20 safest large cities nationally and the safest in the Southeast. With tree-lined streets, well-groomed subdivisions and office parks, Cary takes great pride in its managed growth. Home to world class businesses, national retail stores, and one of the fastest growing Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources program in the State, Cary has something for everyone, regardless of age or interest.
