Sounds like Cary is a perfect fit for you. The only stigma Cary has is that there is a large population of stay-at-home moms and if you were to look up "suburb" in the dictionary, it would say, "See Cary, NC". Since you are used to that and want that you will love it here.

The "C.A.R.Y. stigma" is a joke. A very old joke. I heard it 17 years ago when I first moved to Raleigh, and I'm sure it had been around before then. (The joke is that CARY stands for "Central Area of Relocated Yankees" or something similar.) The size of the town has exploded in the last twenty years, and of course, there are most likely far more non-natives than natives.
