Cary is a municipality located in Wake County, NC (almost in its entirety) with a small part of it being located in the neighboring Chatham County. With an estimated population of 160,000 (2015 estimate), it is the second-largest incorporated town in the U. S., only behind to Gilbert, Arizona. Its population has doubled since the beginning of the century, and that fact makes it one of the fastest-growing municipalities
in the U. S. in this century. It could be said that Cary is one of the ideal places to raise a family. Why? It is deemed as one of the safest places
to live in the U. S., with consistently low crime rates and the proximity of some to some of the country's best universities - like Duke University (ranked 12th in the U. S. and 17th in the world by Times Higher Education
), N. C. State University, and the University of Carolina at Chapell Hill - makes it a not-so-bad place to plan your children's future.
