I love my city. The neighborhood has great green space. I love the walkable routes. The city counsel is always looking for ways to improve the city. The mayor and city officials are approachable and encourage public input.
Carrboro is a sundown town and sundown towns are all-white communities, neighborhoods, or counties that exclude Blacks and other minorities through the use of discriminatory laws, harassment, and threats or use of violence. The name derives from the posted and verbal warnings issued to Blacks that although they might be allowed to work or travel in a community during the daytime, they must leave by sundown. Although the term most often refers to the forced exclusion of Blacks, the history of sundown towns also includes prohibitions against Jews, Native Americans, Chinese, Japanese, and other minority groups. DO NOT MOVE THERE
Although I have been in Carrboro for less than a year, I really love it here. The weather is amazing, there is a local farmers market, and everyone is always out and is very welcoming.
Carrboro is a safe neighborhood. The area is clean and it is welcoming. The area also process great opportunities for the people in the area as well. My experience here in Carrboro has been great so far. I have not run I to any mishaps. Also I love how there is always something to do around here. What is also great is that Carrboro is a pet friendly neighborhood. So it is very nice to take a walk and see all the adorable pets. The weather is mostly really nice most days and you can always find active people. Which I find that to be very inspiring and motivating. The restaurants around here are also mainly local.

It's a great city! The nature is incredible and has a ton of outdoor activities to offer. It is a family-friendly community, including students from UNC-Chapel Hill. Downtown Carrboro offfer unique shops, restaurants, and much more.
I really enjoy living inc Carrboro because of the sense of community throughout the whole town. The suburb of Chapel Hill and Durham offers affordable housing with short walk or bike commutes. Everyone is friendly and I feel very safe living in this neighborhood. Public Transportation is the only things that may need improvement.
Carrboro is a diverse and progressive community. It’s super walkable and has great restaurants and shops.
It's a cool, graduate student and young family-friendly little town. You can find great restaurants and great community programs. It's a small town but there are different people from different many countries with complete different backgrounds and that's what I like about Carrboro, diversity! Also, they have a really good school system especially for ESL and EL(English learner students like myself).
Carrboro is a wonderful, family-friendly town just minutes from Chapel Hill and other parts of the triangle. There's a strong community, lots of live music, and community events.
Carrboro is a friendly, walkable, cute little town right next to Chapel Hill. It's perfect for a graduate student looking to live a little farther away from campus where it's a little more quiet than the undergraduate areas.
I have lived in this area all my life. Although growth is changing some of the things I've come to love about my town, it's still a wonderful place to be.
I love this liberal, inclusive, walkable community! I love the farmer's markets, the coffee shops, the greenway and public spaces, co-op market and public transportation. It's a wonderful town where all are welcome.
We moved here about 10 months ago from the San Francisco Bay Area. We couldn't be happier, this place is magical, so much to do, warm people, great food and great culture!
Quiet, safe neighborhoods. Great for families, college students, and young professionals alike. Easy access to larger urban areas.
I like that Carrboro is close to the bigger cities of Chapel hill, Durham and Raleigh but doesn't have the traffic. Also very nice if you work at UNC hospital, which I do, but can afford or don't want to pay the Chapel hill prices.
Lived here 20 yrs. town has great vibe, friendly, mostly safe, much preferred to Chapel Hill (which I'd more $$ and not as laid back..
