Person County Reviews

1 review
Person County is a great place to raise a family. It is affordable for homeowners or renters. The population enjoys a peaceful moderate pace. It is close enough to Durham-Raleigh to enjoy the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) activities and night life. The Mayo and Hyco lakes has plenty of places for camping, fishing, and water fun, The Kirby Cultural Center is the place for plays, dance recitals, and even movies. Even if you are singe, and looking for that special someone, strolling through one of the many parks and recreational areas will award you with that opportunity to meet that special someone. Person County is where life is good!
