Smithfield is a rural community located about thirty miles southeast of Raleigh on the banks of the Neuse River. Bursting with small-town character, Smithfield’s Downtown district features a timeless collective of vintage storefronts hosting cafes, specialty shops, and other unique small businesses. One of Smithfield’s biggest claims to fame is as the hometown of legendary actress Ava Gardner, and the local museum in her honor is one of the town’s most popular attractions.

The idyllic countryside surrounding Smithfield provides tranquil scenery as well as endless opportunities for hiking, biking, hunting, and fishing. With Raleigh just minutes away by car, Smithfield is a great option for commuters seeking a low-key home environment.
