The HOA newsletter keeps neighbors informed of events, activities, happy hours, progressive dinners, singing group performances, and book club meetings. The community clubhouse hosts classes in line dancing, yoga, and square dancing. Residents also enjoy a gallery space, a fitness center, a card room, a craft room, a library, and a well-equipped kitchen.

Outside amenities include a swimming pool and heated spa, as well as courts for tennis, bocce ball, and shuffleboard. Walking paths wind through streets, past ponds, and to a gazebo.

The Research Triangle area, which includes Cary, Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, is home to North Carolina State University, Duke University, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, making Cary popular with professionals, academics and scientists. The city manages 30 parks and a greenway of more than 70 miles. The Cary Arts Center houses a theater and studio space and presents performing arts classes. The Page-Walker Center produces two concert series, an herb fest and a craft fair.

WakeMed Cary Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission.

North Carolina:

Sir Walter Raleigh sent English colonists to North Carolina in 1585 and 1587 to settle Roanoke Island. Permanent settlements were established in 1653, and early conflicts included pirate raids, the Quaker-led Cary Rebellion and the Tuscarora Indian War.

North Carolina didn't see much fighting during the American Revolution, but many residents went out of state to fight. A lot of locals were pro-Union and anti-slavery, but the state joined the Confederacy during the Civil War.

The state is the nation's largest tobacco producer, furniture maker and brick and textile manufacturer. Papermaking, chemicals, and metalworking are important to the state economy, too. Most lithium and mica come from here.

Tourists spend more than $1 billion in North Carolina annually. Sporting options include skiing, golfing and fishing. Major attractions include the Great Smoky Mountains, Cape Hatteras, the Blue Ridge National Parkway, the Wright Brothers memorial, Carl Sandburg's home, and an Old Salem re-creation in Winston-Salem. North Carolina's climate is warm and tropical most of the time, but it can be subject to fierce storms part of the year.

Newer Communities vs. Older Communities

Retirement communities come in a variety of shapes and sizes. These days new communities have a lot of bells and whistles, often including a large clubhouse with a state of the art fitness center, a resort-style swimming pool, an 18 hole championship golf course (or two or three), concierge services, transportation services, a rental program and much more. Something to keep in mind with newer communities is how the development will look when it is completely built out. And who will the residents be? Older communities often cannot match the amenities of newer ones, but they make up for that by having an established group of residents. You have a better idea what you are getting when you buy into an older development.
