Cary, North Carolina

Having lived in Cary for nearly 30 years, Cindy will tell you that Cary, NC is an awesome place to raise a family! Her children attended Wake Co Public Schools in Cary which were fabulous, and they participated community sports and activities. Her family enjoyed the many parks, walking trails, restaurants and sports events. It’s hard to limit my favorite things about Cary to only 5, but here they are! Cindy Leonard

1. Watching fireworks at the Koka Booth Amphitheatre on the 4th of July. This amphitheatre is 14 acres of rolling land surrounding Symphony Lake and it also hosts the NC Symphony for outdoor concerts and many other musicians. There is enough space for 7,000 people to sit on the lawn and enjoy the performance!

2. Lazy Daze – nearly everyone in the southeastern United States has probably heard of Lazy Daze. It is a fun day-long festival held the fourth Saturday of August every year in the downtown region with live music, delicious food vendors, arts and crafts, clowns, face painters, etc.

3. Ashworth’s Drug Store lunch counter – it’s like walking back in time. Envision walking into a 1950’s lunch counter and ordering a root beer float…. It’s just like that! Their hot dogs are to die for and their orangeade is superb! The Ashworth’s still run the drug store and it’s a full service operation.

4. Cary weather – the weather in Cary, NC is the best. It gets a little warm in July (average high of 90) and a little cool in January (average high of 51), but nothing severe. We get just enough winter without much snow. January and February are probably the months we are most likely to get a dusting of snow or freezing rain. But for 9 months out of the year, going outside is a pleasure.

5.  The people – The population of Cary doubled in the 1980s and doubled again in the 1990s. People move here for many reasons including job transfers, settling here after attending college locally, and the weather (see bullet above addressing the weather!). Also, it does not hurt that we have the lowest total crime in the United States. The people who live here are the friendliest!
