We’ve talked about how wonderful it is to live in North Carolina and all of the wonderful things you can do in Clayton, but what are the perks to living in the Triangle Area? The Triangle is made up of 3 towns: Chapel Hill, Durham, and of course, Raleigh. All three are exciting places to live with tons of opportunities for the arts, sciences, and sports. No matter what your interests are, you’re sure to find something to love here.
Whether you’re interested in baseball, basketball, hockey, or golf, there are opportunities for all of it. Visit a Durham Bulls baseball game, attend a Carolina Hurricanes hockey match, or catch any of our local university games! College sports are a huge part of the sports scene here in Raleigh, so go ahead and decide now whether you’re a UNC, Duke, or NC State fan, because you will be asked!
The NC Museum of Art was the first art museum in the country to be founded by state and local funding. It displays a diverse selection of art from around the world, often featuring collections from famous artists such as Matisse and Renoir. There are many theater and concert venues in the Raleigh-Durham area such as the Duke Energy Center and DPAC.
If you love the outdoors, you’ll love living in the Triangle. There are plenty of opportunities for fishing, boating, hiking and many other activities. With an extensive Greenway system and the Mountains to Sea trail there’s miles of varying levels of walkways to explore. If you love being out on the water, check out Lake Jordan or the Eno River State Park.
The name “The Triangle” actually comes from the universities, not the cities themselves. The 3 points of the Triangle are UNC Chapel Hill, NC State University, and Duke University. All are prestigious, world-renowned schools that draw students and researchers from all over the globe. There are a ton of opportunities for continuing education here, and since they’re not far from The Walk at East Village, you’ll be able to drop by, no problem.
With James Beard award winners like Ashley Christensen and The Great Food Truck Race winners like Pho Nomenal Dumplings, the Triangle’s food scene has it all. If you’re looking for a burger you could drive into Raleigh and try the Char Grill. If farm to table is what you’re looking for, stop by Crawford and Son. And don’t forget to try some of the local Clayton favorites like the famous hot dogs at Jones Cafe. There’s truly something for everyone.
