Hello all,

I was considering buying a home in Morrisville and after some help from my fellow forum members and a few friends from NC, I decieded to look into the above mentioned areas outside of Raleigh. I am wondering if you can give me any information in terms of, type of neighborhood, shopping and schools? Thank you.

We live in Holly Springs and love it. Comparing it to Apex & Garner, its much smaller than both, has better schools than Garner, and is more affordable than Apex. It has many established and new subdivision, 1 golf course & another almost finished. We live in Sunset Ridge which is on the course and is the largest SD in town...it put Holly Springs on the map when it was built about 13 yrs ago. Its has a great small town feel plus and lots of new building going on. Its has 2 nice new grocery stores and strip malls, with a new Walmart & a 3rd new grocery almost complete. Not a whole lot in the way of restaurants unless you like pizza, but Cary is only 15 mins. Its 35 mins to downtown Raleigh, and about 15-20 mins to large shopping areas (Crossroads, Cary Towne Mall & Beaver Creek). If you have any other questions, just let me know.

We are in Holly Springs as well. Personally of schools are a concern for you I would stay clear of Garner. We have been in Holly Springs for about a year. I concur with everything needhalc had stated.
