The Cary Lifestyle

Cary has rapidly evolved into an alternative to big-city living. With its proximity to Raleigh and the Research Triangle Park, it is a relatively short commute to the Triangle area's top employers. Add in an excellent school system, more than 30 parks and greenways trails, abundance of shopping centers, and a small-town atmosphere, and it's no wonder Cary has been named both the "Best Place to Live in The South" and "5th Best Place to live in the U.S."

Founded in the mid-1800s, Cary has transformed itself into a prosperous town full of opportunities. Today, the town is home to several well-known high-tech companies, including software maker SAS, which employs more than 5,625 at its world headquarters.

Cary also features an impressive record of accolades, including "Top 10 Safest Cities in America" (SmartAsset), "Top 10 Most Affordable Places in North Carolina" (Movoto), and "Best Cities for Early Retirement" (Kiplinger), just to name a few. Allow us to show you why Cary remains a popular place to live in the Triangle.

Shopping & Dining

The Cary Towne Center mall is constantly evolving and attracting major retailers, including the only Dave & Buster's in the Triangle. Development of an IKEA, the second store for North Carolina and the first for the Triangle, near the mall was approved in 2017. Down the street, Crossroads Plaza features more than 60 shops and restaurants in a prime spot off of I-40 and US-1. If you're eager to shop local instead, you don't have to look much further than Cary's revitalized downtown district — while you're there, stop by Ashworth's old-fashioned soda fountain for lunch!

Outdoor Recreation

From golf courses to parks to trails, Cary has everything you need to stay active. MacGregor Downs and Preston, two of the town's largest country club communities, surround 18-hole golf courses and provide homeowners with beautiful views of the fairways. If it's hiking you desire, explore nearly 50 miles of paved greenway trails in town or the 22-mile American Tobacco Trail between Apex and Durham. Don't forget to visit Bond Metro Park (one of the largest parks in Wake County) or Thomas Brooks Park (home to the USA Baseball National Training Complex).

There's always something happening in Cary. During the summertime, residents can watch Independence Day fireworks at Koka Booth Amphitheatre, enjoy great food and live music during Cary's Downtown Chowdown, buy works from local artists during the Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival, or dance the night away during Wind Down Wednesdays at Waverly Place. Wintertime brings all manner of seasonal holiday celebrations, including the famous North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival held at Koka Booth Amphitheatre.
