"I hope you like beige...."

I read a review one time that summed it up perfectly. The person said "I hope you like beige!". Cary is a predominantly transplant community. If you are from, NY, NJ,OH, MI you will find tons of people to hang out with. If you are a NC native you will quickly become a novelty at social gatherings. Everybody is Tech and Pharma. Great place to live with kids, affordable housing, great schools, beautiful parks and playgrounds. Just don't expect that famous Southern hospitality.
Pros
  • Cost of Living
  • Close to Beach
  • Good Schools
Cons
  • Sprawl
  • Lack of Culture
  • Boring
