What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Cary

taking a dog for a nice walk and stopping by and getting some hot dogs on Federal StreetDown to the walk trail along the river

I live on a tiny Dead end Street with a half a dozen houses. Most of the houses are occupied by older citizens. There are no children on this street at all. As being an older citizen, I appreciate that there are restaurants and bars, probably within walking distance of the younger person. If I go out, I don't usually stay in this neighborhood

This place is beautiful, overall the park is very close and good to walk safely. People is friendly, good, we have little libraries at street for free to change books. And we have also some community gardens

There is a lot of racial diversity which I want! Most neighbors look out for each other. There are lots of beautiful gardens.

Born and raised here love to be able to visit friend and family by just hoping on bus. I love how I can get on one bus and go to the mall and have access to very many restaurants and shopping store along with grocery

There's a good pizza place a mile and change away. There are plenty of sidewalks so it is safe to jog.
