Red face Morrisville. Good or bad choice?

Is Morrisville a good town to live in? Seems like there's a lot of new construction. Is there anything else in the area or is it like living in the middle of nowhere? (with potential maybe?)

Middle of nowhere? Hardly! In some areas, it's like living on the airport runway (or landing strip).

Be sure you look into the flight paths and runway orientation if you are looking to live there.

Not exactly the middle of nowhere. Heck, have the time I go to Morrisville (lots of shipping companies there), I end up in Cary and can't figure out how that happened!

Yeah, Morrisville has a nice little outlet mall that is not very popular but they have a Saks 5th Avenue outlet that is pretty nice!

Prime Outlets Morrisville on Airport Blvd. It's right next to I-40.

They are actually labeled on google maps. Check them out! It's nice inside and a shame that they are NOT full of tenant stores.

FYI, won't be an outlet much longer. Looks like it'll get redeveloped into a mixed-use project (condos/apartments, offices, shopping, etc.)

Avoid it - too much RTP traffic

Yep, high traffic and like being on the airport runway. Good one, Erin!! I can't believe where developers put houses nowadays. The area will probably keep its value because it's close to Cary and RTP and because it seems a lot of people don't hear the same things I do (like jets flying over with landing gear down and passengers waving hi out the windows).

That mall is my very favorite in town as it's seldom crowded and shopping is so pleasant. Some of the stores have good deals too.

Hey! Maybe Desdemoonie and I will run into each other there sometime! LOL

There is a good Indian restaurant across the street from there too.

BullRise, that's too bad if the mall is altered dramatically - it was one of the few quiet shopping places in Raleigh. That's the problem with hyper-growth in a city. Hopefully, they'll turn it into a mini version of North Hills Mall and keep a few memories intact.

I have friends who live in morrisville and really like it. They moved from southern wake county (apex area) and built a house. He works from home, doesn't seem bothered by the airport noise, they are close enough to cary for the restaurants they want, and the schools in morrisville are excellent. So, there is a flip side to it.......of course, for them, they don't have commute issues.
