Neither are spam, and are both legitimate real estate related questions/comments, and were posted under the "just for fun" heading.

Wow, that is kind of crazy that someone reported the question as spam, there are definitely some jerks in the Rain but also some really wonderful people too.  To be honest, I am not sure what Mesa, AZ is famous for, other than maybe Spring Training baseball.  The weather is usually amazing, so that is probably what it should be famous for, among other things.

*Downtown Cary before renovations began on the new park. You can see the Cary Arts Center in the background which was the first state funded high school.


I live in Cary which is a suburb of Raleigh. Raleigh is the City of Oaks. I had to look up what Cary is known for and got a few different answers.

1) Known for being an educational center as it had the first state funded High School and now has one of, if not the highest percentage of higher educated residents (under grad, masters and phds).

2) Known for its expansive walking trail system and parks. (That was my guess)

3) Known for the world class businesses that have come to Cary and nearby RTP. (Two being SAS and Epic Games)

4) Know of being a safe city.

5) Known to be a smart city/technology town.


*The first time I heard about this town was about SAS Institute which helped put Cary on the map. Cary was growing due to the businesses choosing Cary as their headquarters. It will be interesting to see what rises to the top when people think of Cary. More companies are choosing Cary for its headquarters. The town of Cary is building a world class destination park in Downtown to add to the many parks and walking trails that already exist. One of the largest commercial "live, work, play" shopping districts just opened in Cary. There's a major soccer tournament coming to town this summer and Cary is on the short list for the US Soccer headquarters. 

With all that's happening in Cary, I hope people still remember it for it's kind people, town charm, and the safe city it has been.
