It's an excellent town to grow up in or move to. There are places with affordable housing and it's a very eco friendly place where people can walk around to local businesses and get to Chapel Hill eas...ily as well. There are great educational systems as well. See More

This place has everything an artist could desire. Bike friendly community and easily accessible by foot. Great eateries and coffee houses.

Definitely one of the coolest towns around. Any town where anarchists can hang banners on a fence, and they stay there for a while, is OK with me.
