Every once in a while, you come across a community that’s truly special. To us, Clayton, North Carolina is that community. We want to show you why Clayton is a wonderful place to call home.

Here’s why.

Yes, It’s Small. That’s a Good Thing.

If you’ve lived in a large city for any amount of time, you probably agree that it can be a little… hectic.

That’s why we love spending time in a community like Clayton. While it’s small, it’s closely knit and vibrant. There’s a ton of stuff to do here, and each activity leaves an impression. Not to mention, Clayton has a highly affordable cost of living compared to other big cities in North Carolina.

But, best of all, Clayton’s close-knit community means that people are friendly, neighbors can be counted on, and holiday celebrations are unmissable.

Speaking of Celebrations…

Clayton knows how to celebrate every occasion. As the weather starts to warm up, Clayton throws a big party once a month. It’s called the Clayton Summer Concert Series, and it features free live music, awesome vendors, craft beer, and fun for residents of all ages.

But there’s more than just that. Clayton’s calendar is jam-packed throughout the year. Celebrate the 4th of July with an epic block party, enjoy cultural festivals and events, run a 5k or a marathon, attend the annual Christmas Tree-lighting… there’s so much to do in Clayton!

Plus, the Outdoor Offerings are Phenomenal

North Carolina has a pretty sweet array of outdoor attractions, natural areas, parks, and golf courses, and Clayton definitely has a lot of that to offer.

From popular golf courses like Pine Hollow and the Neuse, to beautiful nature trails at Legend Park and Clayton Community Park, Clayton is the place for outdoor lovers. It’s easy to find homes on multiple acres, near greenways, or with their own little forests, streams, or recreational terrain.

And The Food.

Thinking about all the food offerings in Clayton is giving us some serious heart eyes. Get a steak and a salad at Manning’s on Main for 5-star service and an even better atmosphere. Want something a little more low-key? The pizza at Primo’s is *kisses fingers*.

Looking for some high-quality BBQ? Charlie’s is the place to go. The meat is smoky and tangy, while the hush puppies will have you coming back again and again.

Oh, And We Can’t Forget the Homes

In addition to all the small-town perks of Clayton (the food, the friends, the fun) one huge bonus of living here is the real estate market. Seriously, you can get a whole lot of house in Clayton. Home prices are very affordable and you’ll find a wide variety of neighborhoods to choose from.
