A growing Triangle Community
Once a small railroad town, Knightdale has grown into a thriving community, and nearly tripled in population between 1990 and 2000. There are many reasons that home buyers find this area attractive: its spectacular neighborhoods, its location on US-64 and I-540, and its close proximity to Research Triangle Park are among the top choices.
BBQ, burgers, and local brews are popular menu items at the restaurants near Main Street, but the Knightdale area is also known for its food trucks. Local vendors serve everything from cheesesteaks to coffee in their traveling kitchens.
Everything you need you can find along Knightdale Boulevard, including grocery stores, large retailers, great restaurants, and service centers. Want to shop local? Head to the Knightdale Farmers' Market for fresh food and friendly faces.
Knightdale hosts dozens of community events throughout the year, from popular holiday celebrations like the Fourth of July to local events like Psyched About Bikes. Find even more fun at Knightdale Station Park, a popular gathering place.
