Hi Everyone,

My family and I are thinking of moving to NC. We are currently looking around the Research Triangle area and was wondering if anyone could help me with what areas are the best neighborhoods. We are looking for nice family oriented areas with good schools and nice people.
We are currently interested in Holly Springs, Clayton, Fuquay Varina and Apex. I'm hoping to find a job at either Duke or Chapel Hill. Any tips or thoughts would be appreciated. We will be coming to visit in early January and want to make sure we look at the places that would be closest to what we're looking for. Thanks for your help.

From a purely geographic standpoint, Apex would be the closest of those towns you mentioned. Until the new highways are finished (and even when they are), Clayton is really going to be a stretch, commute-wise. I'm curious what has drawn you to those specific towns. Can you provide some more details about what you're looking for in a home, say price range, square footage, new construction, newer home, or established neighborhood, etc? There are some great newer communities in northwest Apex that would probably fit what you're looking for - Walden Creek comes to mind, just off 55 and 64, near a great new shopping center (Beaver Creek). Also, Cary and Apex kind of blur together in places, so don't rule it out!
