The small city of Dunn is located right off of Hwy 95 South heading toward Fayetteville, NC. If you like country living were neighbors are friendly and just to walk down the street feels like you are in an everyday parade with the waving of hands then this is the place for you. Dunn is a quiet place, over the years a lot of subdivision has been built on the outskirts of the city making more room for people to purchase homes. The downtown area has lots of shops to stop in and find that perfect piece of clothing or antique you've been looking for. Dunn is a quiet place and it has it's ups and downs like most places, but I liked growing up there. A country girl at heart and will forever will be one.

Dunn is a great city. Though its pretty small, we have a cool downtown area full of cute , little shops like a bakery and a few clothing stores where you are bond to find some excellent finds! We have a nice selection of chain resturants and some fine, tasty mom and pop's , too.

If you're looking for a place with that small town, hallmark movie feel, head on over to Dunn!
I love that Dunn is a small quiet place for when a large city gets too overwhelming. I want to see a resource change in Dunn. Dunn is a small southern town, with limited education opportunities, unless they involve agriculture. I wish that this area could focus on teaching business and medical opportunities.
