It is a small town with great local parks, and a few good places to eat. There are not shops for clothing or electronics, so you have to drive about 30 minutes to get to the next town that has a lot of stores and restaurants. Also, there are not many jobs in town. A little over an hour from Columbus, which is okay if you wanted to go to an event over the weekend.

I was born and raised there, the same as my dad. I have only moved 7 miles from where I was raised. I have a lot of family history in the town of Carey. It's an amazing small town. Everyone knows everyone, someone is always there to help you out
There is rarely any violence in Carey, I am not afraid to walk around, we can keep our doors unlocked. Cops are always driving around in Carey always!
