Cary, NC: Big Town, Big Recognition

The Triangle may be a hot destination for area newcomers, but there’s one town that dominates the list of places to live: Cary.

With a population of just over 151,000, it’s a big town – the seventh-largest municipality in the state of North Carolina. And it’s not just big on population; it’s big on recognition, too. Money Magazine ranked Cary among their “Best Small Cities in America,” and it was eighth in “50 Safest Cities” according to the SafeWise organization. With two-thirds of its residents holding a college degree, Cary’s median income is $91,349 – almost twice as much as the median income for the entire state.

Cary's residents are active, educated, and ready to shop!

With its plentiful shopping, large homes, and focus on family and kid-friendly activities, Cary is a popular destination for people relocated from the North. In fact, that's what's earned Cary its tongue-in-cheek acronym-based nickname, "Concentrated Area of Relocated Yankees." (In truth, the 2000 Census found that a little more than 55% of Cary's residents were actually born in other states.)
