Pitt County Reviews

3 reviews
Pitt County is a small community with a southern country feel. The community supports local events and is a great place for retirement or if you are in the market for living in a small community. There are not many opportunities for adults to go out on the town. There are the same duplications of restaurants throughout the town and not enough adult restaurants and activities. In addition, there are limited opportunities for children to engage in outside of school sports and academic clubs in school.

Pitt County seems to be a safe place to live and enjoy small scale family activities. There are many family events and community events held yearly. Economically, however, it is not the best place to live because of lower pay in the majority of the occupations in the area.

Need more attractions for the college-aged students. The area seems packed and condensed, and traffic gets backed up very easily. The food selection is surprisingly diverse.
I live in Greenville, NC. I would recommend living here. There just needs to be more entertainment for the children.
