Clayton is an up and coming Town! It is close to downtown Raleigh and other major areas. It is not over populated and all shopping needs are within a 10 minute commute. They are very community oriented and over many different family events.

It’s a small town outside Clayton with a general amount of restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, other retailers, libraries and banks.
It has small town feel with both apartment living and suburban living. It’s proximity to Raleigh is only a few minutes away and close to the intersection.
Clayton is a growing community but still with a small town feel. Clayton is very welcoming and family oriented. Thankful my family moved to this beautiful suburb of Raleigh 30 years ago
