Live, Work, and Play in Zebulon

Neighborhood within the Research Triangle

As a town just inside the Research Triangle, Zebulon gets the technology and amenities of Raleigh and the close-knit community of a small town. With less than a half-hour drive to Raleigh, Zebulon residents can enjoy special occasions in the city with a visit to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences or stop by the only Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in Raleigh. With an agricultural and farming history, Zebulon has humble roots, but is growing to become a tourist-friendly community.

Job opportunities

Healthcare and agricultural employment are some of the most common jobs in Zebulon. However, coat-making and textiles are steadily increasing in importance among the town's careers as tourism booms. The quick commute into Raleigh means residents of Zebulon don't need to worry about working out of town—I-87 will have commuters at their station at IBM or UNC REX Hospital in less than half an hour.

Top-notch schools

Zebulon is home to amazing public schools for all ages. The nearby East Wake High School serves both Zebulon and Wendell, and allows students to join various clubs and athletic teams. Become part of the East Wake Warriors! For higher education opportunities, Wake Technical Community College, North Carolina State University, and Campbell University are all accessible via the Beltline.

Local events

Enjoy the all-day May Day festival by supporting local agriculture and artisans, or join the Carolina Mudcats' mascot Muddy for a picture after participating in a Fun Run! Celebrate in December with Zebulon's Holiday Happenings, a great kickoff to the holiday season starting with a breakfast mixer, caroling, and a community-wide parade.
