Within the state of North Carolina, you have many great choices of cities and towns to live, but certain ones consistently earn raves for the quality of life here. Most recently, Money Magazine and issued its annual list, and Cary is one of the “2018 Best Places to Live in America”. But at Baker Residential, we already knew how great it is here, which is why we began our community of luxury homes, Providence at Yates Pond.

What makes Cary so appealing?

It could be the academic excellence. “The area is rife with highly educated professionals who want the best schools for their kids—and Cary can offer that,” explained local Realtor and relocation expert, Merry Ann Cutler. “Some of the people moving here are coming all the way from the West Coast.”

Niche ranked Cary as #2 on the 2018 Best Places to Live in North Carolina (Morrisville took the top spot). This beautiful city is also on the list of the top 10 “Safest and Most Peaceful Places to Live in North Carolina”.

Livability scored Cary among its “Best Places to Live”. While echoing the exceptional education here, Livability’s editors also cited other distinctions:

  • Cary is divided into two areas. The eastern side is known for its historic elements and active downtown district. The western section of Cary is growing with new residential neighborhoods in between the golf courses, lakes, and mansions already there.
  • The convenient location is a definite plus for Cary residents, particularly commuters with jobs in the Research Triangle (Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Durham). The interstates and highways are easily accessible from Cary, and Raleigh-Durham International Airport is only 12 miles away.
  • The Research Triangle has brought lots of jobs to the region. Major employers include Arista Networks, Lockheed Martin, and SAS Institute, a technology company that has consistently been rated one of the best places to work in the country. Job-seekers can find anything from start-ups to established corporations in this area.
  • Recreation is equally abundant in Cary. The bike-friendly city is not just great for commuting on two wheels, but offers many trails and routes for cyclists. Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve, USA Baseball National Training Complex, William B. Umstead State Park, and WakeMed Soccer Park—plus 30 parks—are some of the popular venues for outdoor activity.
