My company is relocating me to a Morrisville office in the next month. My stay at home husband and 4 boys (ages 1 year to 6) and I will be relocating to the RTP area. We've lived in the same city out of state for the last 12 years, and it's daunting to think about starting over and not knowing anyone in NC. Any suggestions on how to start mingling and meeting people? Our oldest is starting kindergarten for 2012-2013, but we hope to start meeting people before then. We have rented a house in Cary by Cary Elementary. With four young children, neither my husband or I have a lot of free time for hobbies or interests where I know a lot of people are able to connect. Thanks for any advice!

Come join Cary swim Club! We're right down the road from Cary Elementary and it's a great place to meet other families in the central/ downtown Cary area. We have TONS of kids and kid activity. We are hosting a free 50th anniversary party on May 19th, so please stop by, enjoy the pool and meet other families who live in the area. Lots of Cary Elementary families will be there as well (myself included ).

My wife and I moved to Cary in January with our 2 daughters (10 and 8) from New Orleans. Our questions were pretty much the same as yours. We are in a townhouse right now, but decided to build in a subdivision in Cary off of Carpenter Fire Station Rd. We should be in the house by the end of this month and we have met many great neighbors already. It seems my 10 year old may be the oldest child in the neighborhood, but it seems almost every house has children around your kid's ages. They are a very social neighborhood and very welcoming. Almost everyone is from out of state. Message me if you need add'l info.

You will likely meet a lot of friends in your neighborhood without too much effort. Plenty of people here have relocated and that makes it just generally easier to meet people.
