Ayden is a great town. They do a lot for their community. They have many parades, the local businesses are all about our community, hosting a lot events for the residents including the local bakery working with the local police station to host coffee with a cop for the children, reading events at the library and so much more. Our town is a very proud town.

I've lived in this town since I was seven and it is home to me, but it's not where I want to be in my adult life. I think it's an amazing place to raise a family and build connections with the people around you. That's not what I want as I get older. I don't this place going forward as most people living here have their whole lives and don't want anything to change. It's an old fashioned place with not want advances happening. We had a Wal-Mart Express for about a year before it went 'out of business'. I'd like to be somewhere that always has something going on and new exciting things to try. That place is not here even though here has its up sides.
The biggest attractions are several miles away. The river waterfronts are 30-45 miles away, and the Atlantic Ocean is a little farther. The festivals are mainly for local people to enjoy, as they don't really attract tourists.
