We spent an afternoon here just walking to some of the shops. It is not a big area so a couple of hours will suffice. There are some fun and casual places to sit and eat or drink. Traffic is a bit much but would not let that keep you from going.

About a mile of fun shops and restaurants, easy to walk around and something for everyone. Parking is available both on-street as well as nearby decks (no meters!).

Lots of interesting shops along the street. Many thrift and consignments shops, plus a deluxe Goodwill Store. Check out the package deals on spa services at the Perception Spa, right beside the Byrd Theater. Great place with good prices.

If you're craving that hipster feel and vibe that is all the rage right now, then this is the place for you. I'm originally from Olympia Washington and everything here reminds me of the great Pacific Northwest., minus the clouds and rain! Will definitely come back

Shopping was great! Food at the CAN CAN was very good. You can spend most of the day, strolling the street.

Lots of small boutiques. We went for supper and sat outside at the Daily Cafe. The food was natural and fresh.

We had a wonderful time exploring Cary street and looking at all of the different shops. There is a very "cool kid" and artistic vibe going on.
