Cary Area Guide
Part of Wake County, and one of the fastest growing communities in the area. Once a small crossroads and has grown into one of the most desirable communities in the Triangle. Its central location gives its residents easy access to the Research Triangle Park, Raleigh Durham International Airport and major shopping and dining.
In spite of this growth, the town still maintains its small town charm, but has all the attributes of a metropolitan area. Part of the popularity is its strategic location, conveniently located just 10 miles from Research Triangle Park, and 8 miles from Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Cary is the summer home to the North Carolina Symphony and is also home to USA Baseball.
