Money has released its Best Places to Live in 2017 list, and Knightdale made the list of 100 places chosen for this year!
The Triangle Metro area is frequently named as a Best Place to Live. In fact, it is named on the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Places To Live In The US in 2017 list.
Normally, though, we see Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, or Durham on these “Best Places” lists, because they are larger cities. However, Knightdale offers a truly a great place to call home in the Triangle too. Plus, homes are more affordable and there is less traffic.
The new list from Money looks at places with 10k-100k residents, economic growth, good education, and affordability. Money reporters also interviewed locals to get a feel for neighborhoods.
