You may not have written it on your "must-have" list between an open kitchen and designated laundry room, but chances are that safety is among your top priorities for your next house and the community you will call home.

Fortunately for you, buyers, the Triangle is known to have some of the safest towns and cities in the country with Cary leading the charge.

The Triangle town has recently earned not one, but two separate nods from SafeWise and The National Council for Home Safety and Security touting its safe streets and engaging environment.

Safest Cities to Raise a Child

SafeWise ranked Cary as the tenth best city on its 2017 list of The 30 Safest Cities to Raise a Child sharing that, "While parents always strive to closely supervise their kids, it helps to have a community that's willing to focus on family-friendly initiatives that make the difference."

The home security provider then went on to offer further insight into its research on the growing Cary suburb, reporting:

Located near the Research Triangle Park, Cary's award-winning sports and recreation department has a robust approach to youth sports. Dotted with creeks and tree-lined streets, this community outside of Raleigh is one of the most highly educated in America, as 68% of residents have a college degree. 

Safest Cities in the Nation

Cary also snagged a prime position on the National Council for Home Safety and Security's list of the safest cities in the nation coming in 40th out of the top 100 municipalities reviewed based on FBI and local crime reports.

Like SafeWise, the National Council for Home Safety and Security highlighted many of the Raleigh suburb's recreational amenities and activities to demonstrate the numerous opportunities residents have to enjoy healthy and active lifestyles:

Cary is located between Chapel Hill and Raleigh North Carolina with a population of 160,291. This "Bicycle Friendly Community" is located along the U.S. Bicycle Route 1 along with offering mountain biking in Lake Crabtree County Park. There are also many historic places to visit such as the Page-Walker Hotel, which contains the Cary Heritage Museum to Yates Mill. The area's many lakes such as Lake Johnson and Crabtree provide trails and water sports for entertainment during the hot summer months.

Safe Triangle Towns

Cary isn't the only town in the Triangle region to earn acclaim as a safe place to live.

Over the past year, towns all throughout Wake and surrounding Triangle area counties have added safe-city recognitions including:
