Morrisville Reviews

29 reviews
All Categories
Used to be the best place in the Triangle to live as it was centrally located and you could get to any of the major cultural centers in 15-20 minutes. Now, traffic is as bad as Atlanta during rush hour on the main streets through town and the 15-20 minute drive easily turns into a 40-45 minute drive. They continue to encourage high density population growth without the resources to improve road infrastructure (even as many residents are asking for slower growth till road construction catches up a little). I'd recommend other places in the area over Morrisville that don't have the same traffic issues but still have most of the other benefits now.
Review Morrisville
Morrisville a great place to live. I moved here with my parents 5 years ago and have only had positive experiences. I live in a townhouse in a small close knit community, that is only a three minute walk away from a Harris Teeter, Gas Station, Subways, Pizza Place, Indian grocery stores, and many more restaurants. The crime levels around here as far as I know are very low. The only thefts that I have heard of happened a couple miles over in Cary. Kids who live in Morrisville also have access to great elementary schools like Cedar Fork, middle schools like Davis Drive and West Cary, and high schools like Panther Creek and Green Hope. Many of my neighbors and my dad all work in the IT Department, as it is always looking for new employees. There are also several other job opportunities here for adults and teenagers like myself. Overall, it's a great place to live and highly recommend it to anyone moving to North Carolina or looking for a new place to live.
Everything is within driving/walking distance. Safe, quiet place to be. The schools are great! Nice local libraries and parks to go to.
