Cary is located west of Raleigh and only a decade or so ago was considered a suburb of Raleigh. Since then, it has grown into a thriving Town of 162,000. Two major reasons for this growth stem from the proximity of Cary to the Research Triangle Park and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
Cary has over 100 miles of Greenway paths and 50 multi-use parks connected across the town. Greenways are linear pieces of lane set aside to preserve open areas located in floodplains, along wooden streams, and create a beautiful place to walk, run, and bike. But more than any demographics, averages, or lists can describe, Cary has that charm and hospitality of a Southern City. You have to experience it to understand and thousands of new residents cannot be wrong.
