Cary lands on Money’s ‘Best Places to Live 2016’

Cary has landed among Money Magazine’s “ Best Places to Live 2016.”

The annual top 50 list ranks cities based on 60 key factors, including education, health care and taxes.

Cary ranked No. 37 and was the only North Carolina town to make the list.

Money says of Cary: “A solid schooling system, a safer community, and increased opportunities for job growth mean living in the smaller town pays off. As part of the Research Triangle of NC State University, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, there are also major employers based in the smaller town, like SAS, which employs over 5,000, or sectors of companies like Fidelity or Verizon.”

Money also cites Cary’s trails and summer concert series among its attractive attributes.  I would also add the  people!

Cary at a glance, according to Money :

  • Population: 154,588
  • Median Home Price: $319,000
  • Property Tax: $3,168
  • Unemployment rate: 4.3%
  • Commute time: 22 minutes

Cary is no stranger to the accolade. In November, it ranked No. 6 on 24/7 Wall Street’s list of “America’s 50 Best Cities to Live.”
