It’s no surprise residents truly love living in Clayton, NC! Countryside charm, beautiful neighborhoods, connected community, and plenty of activities and things to do… Clayton’s got them all! And it’s all within a short drive to the big-city opportunities of Raleigh and the Triangle. So, here’s just what’s so charming about life in Clayton.
The Countryside Quiet is Truly Scenic
For those who love to enjoy the undisturbed beauty of nature, Clayton’s got plenty to offer. From outstanding community parks to paddling along the Neuse River, there are tons of ways to get outside. Explore the Clemmons Educational State Forest. Enjoy three local golf courses. Hike or bike the Clayton River Walk (part of the statewide Mountains to Sea Trail). Even enjoy a secluded ride on horseback along Clayton’s miles of paths. (Here, you can even live the equestrian lifestyle at communities like Portofino).
The Southern Hospitality Means Everyone’s a Friend
Friendly neighbors are everywhere, so be prepared to be greeted with a friendly smile or a wave everywhere you go. And don’t miss out on any of Clayton’s outstanding events, like the Clayton Harvest and Music Festival, Clayton Farm and Community Market, Town Square Concert Series, Mondo Roots Art & Music Festival, July 4th Celebration, or the Christmas Village.
Beautiful New Neighborhoods Offer Outstanding Homes
The secret is out—Clayton is pretty spectacular! That means new residents, which in turn means new homes and neighborhoods. One such neighborhood (that in my opinion truly outshines all the rest) is Wellesley.
Located in the rolling hills and lush woods of true countryside beauty, Wellesley offers stunning new homes at affordable prices. Lots are spacious, ranging from half an acre to over a full acre, and floorplans start at 2,200 square feet. Currently, the neighborhood is home to 7 acres of open space and a playground, but there’s more on the way—like a community pool and recreation center, walking trails, a park, a dog park, and more.
There’s Plenty to Do for Everyone
Whether you’re looking for local shops and restaurants or active nightlife, Clayton has it all. Explore Downtown Clayton, where you can find local eateries like Manny’s or Primo’s, or even enjoy events at Wine on Main. Catch stellar musical or theatre performances at The Clayton Center, or even enjoy a little laid-back nightlife at Flipside Karaoke, the Cleveland Draft House, or Deep River Brewing Company.
The Location is Unbeatable
Live in the country, but enjoy all the perks of life in the city! Whether you’re looking for high-caliber employment, endless nightlife, nationally-renowned entertainment, or even pro sports, in Clayton you’re just a short drive away from it all! Easy access to major highways places all the amenities, attractions, and opportunities of Raleigh and the Triangle just a short trip away.
