Garner, North Carolina, is a booming town just south of Raleigh. A wave of new residential and commercial construction has set the stage for exciting growth of this conveniently situated, family-friendly community. Real estate options consist of detached, single-family homes, townhouses, condominiums and waterfront properties. Located about eight miles south of Raleigh, where Interstate 40 meets U.S. Route 70, and near several major roadways, including Highways 70, 440, 55 and 40, Garner provides easy access to the RTP, Durham, and Chapel Hill.
If you're thinking about a weekend getaway, the Outer Banks, Myrtle Beach, Blue Ridge Mountains, Dunham Bulls baseball team, should fit the bill. The best educational opportunities are local as well, including UNC Chapel Hill, Duke University, NC State and Campbell University. While Garner's location is definitely an advantage, it is the community atmosphere that has attracted many home buyers. Residents enjoy supporting their neighbors, with large attendance numbers for town events, and high school sporting events.
Popular outdoor recreational activities promote a strong sense of community. Fishing tournaments and boat races at Lake Wheeler or an afternoon at the Eagle Ridge Golf Course, one of the many local courses, are a few favorites. The town's recreational department also offers classes and activities designed for all ages and interests, such as pre-school, adult and senior programs. Another advantage of Garner living is the quality of the public education system. The Wake County School District operates Garner Magnet High School, East Garner Magnet and North Garner Magnet Middle Schools, plus several elementary campuses.
