Big news for those considering a move to Clayton, North Carolina: Clayton was recently recognized as one of the most affordable places to live in the country. It was also recognized as having one of the top school systems.
A rural suburb located 16 miles southeast of Raleigh, Clayton is near the Research Triangle Area, North Carolina State University, and the busy downtown Raleigh area. Duke University is nearby in Durham. With such a great location, Clayton is one of the fastest-growing communities in the state.
Clayton is home to an indoor speed go-kart racing facility, the Clayton Center, a community center, and the Eye on the Eagle Art Center. The art center is located in Historic Downtown Clayton in a house that dates to 1856.
Enjoy the nearby golf clubs, parks, and the Clemmons State Educational Forest, which contains hiking trails and a collection of talking rocks. Clayton is a great place to raise a family, but it is also a relaxing location for anyone wanting to live outside the Triangle area.
