When you visit Cary, you immediately know there is something different.  You may not find oversized, brightly colored billboards & signs or lawn art.  But, what you will find is miles of green walking trails, lots of friendly smiling faces, and a myriad of community activities.

 

People move here for the proximity to technology & medical employment, the schools & universities, seasonal weather, affordability, lifestyle, convenience to mountains & beaches, and so much more.
