BrierCreek is directly in the flight path, Cary is much larger and most of it is not. I've noticed I can't spend time outside in BrierCreek. Luckily I only go there to shop and eat.

I believe the map shows most of the residential area in Brier Creek to be outside even the noise disclosure area:

I have lived in The Carrington Apartments at Brier creek for the last 2.5 years. I love it. Being 30 something it is very close to all the shopping and restaurants that you could want. Most of the people in this area seem to be very active and on the younger side. Cary is nice as well but if you are looking for all in one area then Brier Creek is it. I have two very good friends that live in different areas of Brier Creek and none of us have any complaints with regard to noise.(airplane traffic)

You'd think briar creek would have airport noise, but it doesn't. If you're single, go for briar creek over Cary, which is very family oriented.

Brier Creek does have airplane noise. I hear it all the time. It is not as loud as places in Morrisville, but it is there. It doesn't matter if it is in or out of a notification zone if you can hear it loud and clear. It doesn't bother everyone.

Brier Creek is NOT in the direct flight plan. Parts of Cary (especially around Preston) are.

Preston sure as &^%^$# is! We were there for a swim meet last year and I swear I thought a plane was going to land directly in the pool. It was super creepy to watch! Brier Creek is close to the airport, but not in a direct flight path.

I lived near Brier Creek, walked dogs in Brier Creek daily, and shopped/ate there at least twice a week and the plane noise was not that bad. There is some, but they are usually pretty high around there so it's not that loud, and there just aren't that many flying over. I'm very sensitive to noise and didn't find it that bad.

While not currently an issue, and perhaps not one for the foreseeable future, RDU does have a third runway on its plans that would be closer to Brier Creek.

My two cents.Brier creek is a shopping plaza surrounded by highways,which to me would get old in about six months,only so many times you can go to home goods.Cary is a city,with the shopping,restaurants you want,but also,with parks,and other things to do.Too say Cary is only for families is rediculous.I can't even believe we talk about brier creek like it's an actuall town.
