Crime & Safety
Benson is a small community in North Carolina. It is the halfway point when travelling from New York to Florida. It is known for it's annual Mule Days festival that is held the 4th week in September.Their is a parade, rodeo and various activities to commemorate the festival. Benson is ideal to raise kids as their is plentiful space for kids to play outside. The stores on the Main Street are closed by 7 p.m. The residents are generally friendly and very little ever happens here that is news worthy.
Benson is a small, friendly town. It is convenient to major cities via highway 40 and 95. I love Benson!
Benson is small and loving community. We are a town of people who smile, wave, and greet everyone we go by on a daily basis. We are raised with love and support for our community and all of the local businesses.
