Reasons Cary is a Great Place to Live
Cary may technically be a town, but it has a city vibe. Therefore, you get to experience all the best of town life -- with a close-knit community and amenities that are easy to reach -- while also experiencing all the best of city life, with plenty of opportunities for recreation. Cary is a primary bedroom community for Raleigh, and it is located just off Interstates 40 and 440, two major thoroughfares for the Triangle. Here's what you need to know about what makes Cary so special and why you might want to consider investing in Cary real estate:
Cary's public school system ranks as one of the best, and the town is within minutes of dozens of universities, colleges, community colleges and technical schools. Approximately 60 percent of the town's residents have a bachelor's degree or higher -- double the national percentage -- so education is a focus here.
Health Care and Recreation
Cary is part of the Wake Med and Rex Healthcare systems. It also hosts many opportunities for residents to enjoy outdoor recreation to remain healthy. For example, Cary has 70 miles of trails and pathways for walking, hiking, and biking, and it is home to the Stevens Nature Center, located at the Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve. It is also expanding bike lanes throughout town.
Cary is an amateur sports Mecca. It is considered an NCAA Championship City (even if not technically a city) and is home to the USA Baseball National Training Complex, Cary Tennis Park and WakeMed Soccer Park. The town hosts numerous sports championships throughout the year.
Those not interested in sports can head over to the Booth Amphitheatre for concerts from big-name touring acts, the North Carolina Symphony and more. The amphitheatre also hosts an outdoor movie series in the summer.
