Clayton hands down! Clayton has affordable housing AND great schools. My inlaws have land in Angier and offered to give it to us for free to build a home on and we passed! Everyone is different and you may like Angier. It just isn't for us.

airplaneladysr, what are you trying to find out? Which city is "best" how? Best at what? Best for what purpose? Best by what standard of measure? If you want a good answer, it would help if you would clarify what it is you're looking for.

As a place to live, many people would agree with escapenc that Clayton is preferable. Clayton is certainly more developed and more suburban, for better or worse. And it does have schools that are considered by many to be better. But Angier's a nice little town, too, and it's developing as well. Actually, Angier today is sort of like what Clayton was like 15 years ago. But for now, Angier is definitely more country. At their core, though, Angier and Clayton are actually quite similar to each other. They have similar history, and they're not very far apart, so the countryside around each looks pretty similar.

I hope this helps.

Clayton is considered more desirable than Angier, by many.

Depends on what you like...Clayton has more retail and eateries. Angier is smaller and quieter.

Both are very nice, but if you want some after 4:00 pm life, Clayton is the choice. Angier is Harnett County so taxes may be a bit lower than JoCo.

We would love to have it if the in laws still want to get rid of it..

It depends..... There are neighborhoods in the McGees Crossroads area (Johnston County) that have an Angier address and is the area that several of my friends really enjoy. I haven't heard as much positive experiences with the actual town of Angier. (Harnett County)

(I think that answer may be clear as mud do newcomers, but I tried)

Both are towns, not cities. Maybe that helps a tad bit?!

Angier seems much smaller than Clayton. I have friends that grew up in Angier and it was basically small town USA, not much to do except cruise around town or play recreational sports. There's really not much there at all. I think Clayton has a bit more to offer, but it really depends on what you're looking for.

Clayton by a very wide margain!
The only thing I ever found worthwhile in Angier was Seven Sisters Restaurant. It was a great restaurant but it closed several years ago.

Angier is much more rural/agricultural...Clayton is more suburban and has more suburban/residential-type neighborhoods...and is bigger. Depends what your looking for.
