Choosing the perfect community for your home can be tough—especially when you’re exploring a new community or choosing from an area with a lot of great towns and neighborhoods. Take the Triangle, for example. There’s the thriving city of Raleigh, the upscale town of Cary, the quaint town of Apex… And then there’s Johnston County with all its lovely little Southern country towns, like Clayton and Smithfield… So, which is right for you?
Here are four signs you’ll love living in Benson.
You Crave a Blend of Tradition & Modern Living
With deep roots in agricultural industry, Benson is still today a quiet little farming town with plenty of local growers, farmers, and herders. But it has definitely modernized over the years, with new communities popping up across the countryside and new businesses making their homes in Downtown Benson. It gives residents a nice blend of small-town simplicity and modern convenience.
You Want to Stay Close to Amenities, But Not Too Close
Big-city living definitely isn’t for everyone. Who wants to deal with the constant traffic and noise, with long lines at the grocery store, and with all that rush-rush-rush. Sometimes, you just need a little fresh air and some room to roam!
But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice convenience or resign yourself to 30-minute drives to the closest grocery store. Not in Benson, anyway! Here, you can appreciate the peace and quiet of small-town living with plenty of stores and conveniences nearby.
You’d Like an Easy Drive to Work
Benson is located at the intersection of I-40 and I-95, two major interstates passing through the area. For Benson residents, it means a convenient drive to both Raleigh (thanks to I-40) AND Fayetteville (courtesy of I-95).
It also means that longer trips for vacation or travel are also pretty convenient. I-95 travels up the Atlantic coastline from Florida to Maine, while I-40 stretches all the way to California.
You Appreciate Small-Town Charm & History
One of the best things about living in Benson is its small-town country charm, the kind you just don’t find many places these days. Benson is a community where neighbors become friends at events like Benson Mule Days or the Harvest Festival. It’s a place where beautiful parks provide ample space for fishing, boating, hiking, camping, and horseback riding. And it’s a place where local business still thrives in a quaint Downtown setting.
