It’s no surprise that Morrisville (the Triangle’s smallest town) is one of the Triangle’s most popular amongst those working in RTP. Research Triangle Park, or RTP as the locals call it, is one of the world’s largest research parks and is home to Fortune 500 companies such as IBM, Cisco, Glaxo Smith Klein, and Lenovo, to name a few. Morrisville has several large subdivisions such as Kitts Creek, Keystone Crossing, Breckenridge, Park West, and Town Hall Commons.
But Morrisville isn’t all work. Residents enjoy biking trails, festivals, and its location in the heart of the Triangle means you have quick access to events, shopping, and even the RDU International airport for a quick getaway. Morrisville has two signature events. The East Meets West festival celebrates Morrisville’s cultrally diverse community, with a day of food, culture, and music from around the world every September. SpringFest, held in June, turns Town Hall Drive into a carnival for the whole family! The event includes great entertainment, midway games, rides, live music and some of the Triangle’s best food trucks!
