We just sort of landed in the suburbs of Cary without lot of thought put into it. When I transferred to North Carolina in 1997, Cary was the geographical center of the accounts I had in the territory I was working.
We always lived in town until we found a place to rent on 3 acres. We still only drive about 5 minutes for groceries and other things so I guess you could call it suburban. It is so nice to have some elbow room around us. Hoping to be able to buy this year.
This decision has been hard for us. We want to be close to Raleigh for fun stuff, but like the quiet of rural suburb neighborhoods. And we don't want to be too close to NC State and college kid action.
