Hi, my family and I are relocating to the Cary area. My wife will be working at UNC Hospital. We are a family of 3 with a yellow lab. We are looking for young family communities with parks, pools and community activites. We are looking to rent at first for 6-12 months. I was wondering which area's in Cary would fit what I am looking for. The closer to UNC the better.
Thanks

Welcome to the Triangle! I am a long time Cary resident and a graduate of Cary High. Hopefully I can help you. Since your wife works at UNC hospital and you want to try and limit her commute, I might recommend the area of Cary Park. Cary Park is a large development with parks and the such. It is also located off of Highway 55 and has access to I-40 and I-540.

In Cary the Preston area and heading west towards Davis Drive, Hwy 55 and the Cary Park area. Just North of Preston and Davis Drive is Morrisville. Morrisville is a great choice as well. It is so similiar you would still think you are in Cary. This whole area has easy access to 540. Preston might be a little bit of a stretch.

Another area is the Harrison/Weston Pkwy area. Very close to 40 so it provides you with easy access.

UNC is in Chapel Hill and has great schools.

Why not consider that area?

I would certainly look at developments on the perimeter of Chapel Hill if your wife will be commuting to the UNC hospital. Rents will probably be lower in Cary or Morrisville, but it is worth making the comparison and taking into account dDistance from shopping and services.

You might like the community of Stonewater. Has many of the amenities you are looking for and also has places you may rent. It is a good location since you need to commute as well. There are other developments over in that area that also could fit your criteria. Just depends on how much you want to spend. Congratulations on your move.

We are building in Stonewater right now and are very happy soo far. The location would be great for you. It seems like a family neighborhood but we don't live there yet-we have 3 year old twins and two labs!
