Come Explore Life in Wendell

While the Triangle's big cities are well known, its small towns are hidden gems. Wendell is one of these beloved Triangle communities with rich history, tree-filled neighborhoods, a quintessential downtown, and a slower pace of life.

Its location, however, is a major reason for its recent growth. Located about 15 miles east of Downtown Raleigh, Wendell is a short drive from popular attractions, top employers, and major highways. The I-540 Outer Loop around Raleigh is just a 10-minute drive from the town.

This is just a taste of what life is like in Wendell. Have questions about the area? We have the answers! Call us at 919-274-9111.
