Welcome to Cary

With an ideal location just west of Raleigh, Cary is close to all the excitement of the big city. But this growing town has more to offer than a convenient commute. Prestigious golf courses, premier shopping destinations, and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities have turned what was once a small town by the railroad into one of the Triangle's sought-after communities.

About the Triangle Area

"The Triangle" gets its name from Research Triangle Park, a 7,000-acre office park located in Durham. More than 50,000 employees—residents of Cary, Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and surrounding communities—work at the 200+ companies in the research park, including IBM, Cisco, Fidelity Investments, and Credit Suisse.
