Hello my fellow Active Rain bloggers! For awhile I was posting some Cary localism from my blog site, 365 Things to do in Cary. However, I was hacked awhile back and have been unable to continue. I have been in luck though because it has given me the opportunity to start fresh in 2013 with a new blog site that lets me get out more information on the area, as well as not have to worry about posting every, single day! I would love it if you all checked out my new blog at discovercary.com. It is a work in progress, but I am proud so far.  I wish you all a wonderful 2013!

Brookstone Subdivision Cary, NC A Year In Review - 2012 Brookstone is a wonderful and very popular neighborhood conveniently nestled between Hwy 55 and Jenks Carpenter Rd. The location provides for extreme convenience to Cary, Apex, RTP, Durham, and Chapel Hill. It also has a great neighborhood feel. While Brookstone homes were built primarily in the mid - 1990's, many of the homes have been updated. What's also great about the Brookstone Homes is many have larger lots that what is normally found in Cary, NC. It should also be noted that Brookstone has great proximity to Walking Trails and Parks. What some people don't know about Brookstone is that there are actually two sections as determined at the time the homes were built. The Village section was comprised of smaller floor plans. Th...
