    Renter's guide to Cary, NC

    Cary is a small city in North Carolina that rests in what is known as the Research Triangle, consisting of Raleigh, Durham, and Cary. The city is often referred to as a bedroom community, since many area residents make the short 10-mile commute to Raleigh, or the 20-mile trip to either Chapel Hill or Durham. In fact, Cary has been ranked as one of the best cities for teleworkers, due to its proximity to numerous large employers headquartered-, or with offices in the Triangle.

    The city has a small-town feel, despite having a population of over 150,000, and is known for having exceptional school districts and low crime rates. The weather in Cary is typically very pleasant, with a mild spring and fall. The summers do get hot and humid with a fair amount of rain, while the winters are fairly mild, although residents will see some occasional snow and freezing rain.
