Living in Knightdale, NC:
Knightdale is located on the eastern side of Wake County in central North Carolina, part of what is know locally as the 'Triangle Region'. It is just 6-miles east of downtown Raleigh, the Capital of NC. It is an attractive, thriving community and its citizens enjoy the comfort and security of living within a small community, but are able to take advantage of the benefits of living close to the major metropolitan Triangle area.
An easy commute to Raleigh on I-540 or I-440, Knightdale has become a popular option for Triangle homebuyers. There are many established neighborhoods such as Mingo Creek and Planters Walk, but also many new communities such as Brookfield Station and Knightdale Station. It is an active and engaged small community and its residents love the ever-expanding park and greenway system, and its vital arts community. Its location makes it a convenient bedroom community for those employed in nearby Raleigh, and Knightdale has experienced rapid growth over the last couple of decades. However, local families say it still maintains its small-town charm and sense of community, and offers an excellent quality of life.
