It doesn't have much. It is right off I-95 with places to eat and get gas. Its biggest thing is Mule Days every September or October.
It is a quiet town. The older generation is more prejudice. The diversity in the age ranges from 60 years of age to the present is awesome. I would diversify the managing of the town.
Benson is a small, friendly town. It is convenient to major cities via highway 40 and 95. I love Benson!
To have more job opportunities. Startup business cost are to expensive and there aren't a lot of options in town. The cost of living to decrease in town.
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.
You will love benson if you love the country. There are tons of fields and the local walmart is 15 mins away. It is a fast developing area but will always have the back country road feel to it.
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.
