Carytown — 10/10 Rating (based on 1 neighborhood reviews)
Carytown is a great place to live. You are only a five-minute walk to restaurants and shops. You are only a ten-minute drive to campus. My roommates and I live just off of Cary Street, but we surprisingly, haven't had any problem finding street parking. We also never have problems with loud noises because the street we live on is more residential.
