Can you answer some questions I have specifically about your roads,and shopping plaza"s.First,are your center medians landscaped and well manicured or is it just grass/ weeds/trash?Second,are the roads maintained as far as not having rutted muddy shoulders,banged up gaurd rails etc.Third,Are the shopping plazas in the area well landscaped,clean and well maintained?Lastly,Are the shopping/retail areas modern,and or remodeled,or is it like stepping into 1975?

This is yuppie central, of course everything is new and pretty and perfectly landscaped.

It feels a little bit too much like stepford for my liking.

Yes. Not all but most. Cary Parkway and Weston Parkway has almost all completely landscaped medians. Very pretty to drive down. Preston Corners intersection (High House/Cary Pkwy) is the pretties intersection I think. Kildaire Farm is also very pretty between Cary Pkwy and Ten Ten Rd. Regency Parkway is very pretty. Cary does take great pride in maintaining its look. As you get closer to the older areas and Crossroads the look is a little different but it's certainly still nice.

Cary's population has grown nearly ten-fold since 1975, so you're not going to find much that could even be from before that time.

In Cary, roadways are well policed for trash. The exception that comes strongly to mind is US1 between Walnut St and Hwy 64 offramp. Being a state maintained road, and having traveled it today along that stretch, it is a wretched mess. Appalling amount of trash. This is not Cary's fault, but due to the status as a state road, it's still mighty embarrassing.

Every single time I come back from the mall I look at this and just think this is not like Cary or even Raleigh. Terrible...someone should organize a trash cleanup there its been like that as long as I can remember. I'll help.

Cary strikes me as what 'they' had in mind as the "best of Suburbia," Stepford or not.

Moving here from Wilmington, NC, where there are few, if any restrictions, I'll take Cary any day. Wilmington, by comparison, aside from the downtown or historic neighborhoods, is just plain u-g-l-y nowadays. When I go 'home' to visit family, I am always happy to get back to Cary.
