Situated in the middle of North Carolina is the rapidly growing town of Garner, about 8 miles from Raleigh. Garner is both a suburb and a small town with a population of over 27,000. Thanks to its close proximity to Raleigh, Garner is a place that has a small town feel with uptown access to everything Raleigh, the Research Triangle Park, and other areas have to offer. There are plenty of recreational activities with its nearby lake. Picture of Water Tower over Main St. courtesy of Wikipedia and Melizabethi123.
