Cary is a community on the move. Residents can bike, hike, canoe, kayak, cross country ski, skate and golf at one of the village’s three country clubs. There also are sports fields, playgrounds, parks, the Fox River and popular Hollows Conservation Area.
A charming downtown, recreational areas and a Metra station are just a few of the reasons residents love this McHenry County village.
The Metra station is on the site of Cary’s first railway station built in 1863. The railroad played a key role in Cary’s evolution from a farming community to the suburb it is today. The railroad enabled farmers to sell their produce and pickles to Chicago and St. Louis buyers, expanding the local economy.
A range of housing is available at affordable prices including single-family homes, townhomes, 2-unit homes and apartments.
The majority of students attend schools in District 26 and District 155.
As an added bonus for residents who love to shop local: nearby Crystal Lake provides plenty of independent specialty shops and boutiques.
