Morrisville is a family friendly community with very well manicured parks and beautiful scenery. There are plenty of shopping centers and grocery stores that are very well maintained and, the people here seem to care for their community by trying to keep it clean. I just moved here about three weeks ago from Colorado but i feel a tighter sense of community here and can definitely tell a difference in the people i encounter everyday. Everyone here is friendly and willing to strike up a conversation just in passing. I would have to say that Morrisville is a nice place if you are looking to settle down and start a family.

Morrisville is very nice for eating out, shopping, luxurious housing, as well great for walking/biking trails for everyday exercise. In the early mornings, people are seen walking and running around the neighborhoods, people are very health conscious and many new organic food places have opened up. Morrisville is increasing in diversity, also in competitiveness in local schools. Over the past couple of years, Morrisville is becoming very lively environment causing it to have really well affect on the housing market. Morrisville is also close to the RTP area, which is really convenient for working people.
Morrisville is one of the first places I experienced when I moved down south! This city has blessed me with the opportunity to work with young children! It was the city that welcomed me and helped me to navigate when I had no idea where to go! There are many restaurants and shopping centers near each other that made it very helpful and convenient.
