Morrisville is very clean and fresh-looking! It's homey and very diverse. I have recently moved here for work and it was very easy to find my current job. Many people commute to Raleigh, Durham, or Chapel Hill to work as well. I like how Morrisville is right in the middle of the triangle, so everything is in easy access! Morrisville offers many wonderful places to eat as well, and a lot of them are privately owned so you get authentic meals. If you are more interested in night life, downtown Raleigh is just down the road, and makes for an easy way to go out with your friends.

Having lived in Morrisville for about 7 years now, my involvement with the community has fortunately felt highly sociable in many ways; these include neighborhoods' abilities to generate events effectively and quickly, while also developing habits that continue our community to engage in conversation through healthy media and in-person locations.
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.
