I love Boiling Springs. With only one stoplight, it may make you think this small town isn't capable of doing big things, but that just isn't true. Between Gardner-Webb University, and all of the local small town businesses, Boiling Springs is booming. The local high schools, Crest High School and Shelby High School, are known for their outstanding academics and football. In 19 years of residency, I only heard of one instance where residents didn't feel safe, which was due to issues at the college. Nightlife is quiet, if you want a party at night, you can drive to nearby cities of Shelby or Forest City. Boiling Springs is extremely family friendly, which is why young families are abundant there. There are plenty of Real Estate Opportunities, from the suburbia of local neighborhoods to rural life out in the country, they are a five-minute drive away. Everything you have is nearby, and you can live a comfortable life. Boiling Springs is amazing and I wish I could tell you more.
