A Small Town Convenient to Everything

Clayton grew overnight into the most popular small town in the Raleigh area. One reason? Its short commute to Raleigh. Clayton is a happy medium for home buyers who want the peace and quiet of a rural community with all the convenience of a major suburb.

But convenience is not all Clayton has to offer. Though it has grown rapidly in population, it hasn't lost its character. Downtown Clayton is still a destination filled with locally owned and operated businesses, from fine dining establishments to jewelry stores and boutiques.

What Makes Clayton Unique?

Homegrown Culture

Downtown is Clayton's central gathering place. There is always something happening in this area; country music concerts in Clayton Town Square, the local farmers' market in Horne Square, and food truck rodeos at Deep River Brewing Co. are popular.

Countryside Peace and Quiet

Clayton is located in northern Johnston County, a mostly rural area. Unlike Raleigh or its other suburbs, Clayton is a peaceful town that is filled with fields, local farms, and neighborhoods that offer home buyers plenty of space.
