The best place to live, work, and play.
This is the mission our town strives to live out every day, in an effort to keep Cary - well, Cary.
Because the spirit of our town is what sets it apart, and Cary would not be the thriving, diverse, educated, sustainable, proactive, and creative town it is today without the dedication and involvement of the community.
The Town’s sesquicentennial anniversary is a cause for celebration, and there is certainly a lot to celebrate about Cary. The last few decades have been an especially transformative time in Cary’s history. Today Cary is the second largest town in the country and has become known nationally as a thriving community that consistently ranks among the best and safest places to live, work and play. Throughout its exponential growth, Cary has been able to maintain its standard of excellence due to the foresight of its leaders.
Our calendar of upcoming events:
