Why is it so popular? The list is long so pull up a chair! First, there's the charming blend of old and new. Downtown Clayton is full of walkable streets, and delightful little shops, truly charming!

Clayton's plan for growth is extensive and very detailed. The currenttown officers appear to be focused on growth that blends the best of the old and brings in the highest and best for the population.

So, what I haven't talked about is the real estate. Truly, I was keeping the best till the last. The quality of builders Clayton is impressive, and the price point is still quite reasonable. In our area, we jokingly call the town of Cary the "Containment Area for Relocated Yankees" because so many northern transplants moved into the area during the 80s and 90s.

So, if an effort to explain this new growth in the lovely town of Clayton it has acquired its own acronym. Today, we say that Clayton stands for the "Cary Like Area Yankees Think Of Next."
