Holly Springs, NC – Around The Research Triangle Best Places To Live In NC
Well, if it’s Friday it must be time for The Carolina Report and our journey to the Best Places To Live In North Carolina.
Hi everyone and welcome!
Those of you who’ve been following our trip through the Best Places To Live In North Carolina the last few weeks know that we are exploring a number of small towns in the Triangle/Research Triangle of North Carolina’s northern Piedmont Region as potential best places for you to relocate or retire in North Carolina.
Now some of you who are new to The Carolina Report might ask yourself, “Why?”
Well, good question.
The Research Triangle area drives a lot of the state and regional economy that correspondingly is a place with good jobs, quality housing, incredible economic and social diversity and just a higher standard of living all together. Thus making it a best place to relocate or retire in North Carolina.
Of course, the short answer is that you, our readers, asked us to show you more best places to live in North Carolina and I'm pleased as punch you did because frankly there are a lot of neat smaller towns and cities in this area with a lot to offer you!
Without further ado let's go ahead and learn about our 8th stop in a town whose name conjures us some truly pleasant imagery, Holly Springs, NC.
Holly Springs sits about 25 miles south of Raleigh, NC not far removed from the southern bounds of Cary and Apex, NC, which are frankly two of my favorite best places to relocate or retire in this area and North Carolina.
Just like Raleigh, Cary and Apex, Holly Springs has experienced considerable growth in the last twenty years going from a small rural town of less than 900 people to 24,661.
Holly Springs, North Carolina had known little but hard times for several decades but now is a revitalized community welcoming new people and businesses from all over the area and all over the country.
If you take a closer look at Holly Springs you’ll see that that growth has been managed quite well and the town has done a lot to maintain its small town charm.
I particularly like the classic feel of the town hall sitting right in the middle of things on Main street, not far from shops and restaurants.
You’ll also notice a conscious effort to provide public spaces for people to meet, hang out and relax and for a small town Holly Springs, NC has an awful lot of community, especially family-oriented activities to offer.
The local median home value in Holly Springs, North Carolina is still only around $160,000 so check it out!
