My husband and I are moving to Cary this fall with our 2-year-old daughter. I'm a bit overwhelmed by the number of communities in the area and am struggling to figure out which area is the best fit for us.

We'd love to find a neighborhood that has lots of little kids (preschool, elementary, etc). I'd also love to find a neighborhood where the neighbors actually get to know and interact with each other. I'd appreciate the names of neighborhoods that fit this kind of lifestyle!

We're looking to spend around $350k, and would rather not move TOO far south since we want to be able to get to Durham relatively easily.

Amberly or Stonewater would be good choices - both newer neighborhoods with lots of children. Very good access to Durham via Rt 55 to 147N. I know people who live in amberly. There are tons of children, incredible kid friendly pool.

Highcroft Elementary is the heart of Highcroft.
$325,000--$350,000 is the low end, but there are a few choices.

Also, Highcroft Village, although possibly a presale new construction that may not work in your time frame.

Wellsley is a possibility, again, at the low end of the neighborhood. But good ones go fast because of the Davis Drive School assignments. Very active community pool.

You might like something in Carpenter Village, and should have a selection to consider. Pretty community with amenities.

I like Oxxford Hunt, Walden Creek, Waterford Green, and Haddon Hall. I don't know if you are also considering Apex. I like the more established neighborhoods because of the trees and landscaping.
