Community Life

If you want an innovative town that is rapidly growing, but appreciate a quaint, small-town vibe, Cary is the perfect place to grow your business. We are not only dedicated to expanding, but preserving. Our community pride is strong, and we rank as one of the safest cities in the United States. With all that Cary has to offer, it is no wonder why it is repeatedly voted as one of the Best Places to Live. Outdoor recreation is something that our residents take full advantage of, earning Cary recognition as one of North Carolina's Fit Communities. Our proximity to some of the top universities in the country attracts highly educated residents, which has grown our population to more than 145,000. Cary’s government runs under a council-manager form of administration, and a seven-member town council is elected.
