At first, i've never heard of Four Oaks until I moved here. The people are very friendly. The school system is great and offers many opportunities. I had my doubts until I got the full experience. This town is pretty family friendly and is a safe place to live.
I've lived in Four Oaks for more than 10 years and I can honestly say that at first I was not at all intrigued about living in such a quaint town, especially coming from a populous city prior to. However it did not take long for me to enjoy the opportunity of living somewhere that can bring peace to one by simply going outside looking at the array of trees found almost everywhere near my home. I also learned to appreciate the small population count because unlike in a big city, everyone knows each other and genuinely cares about ones well being. I would like to see this type of community closeness with more people of a different background opposed to the few that I grew up getting to know. I think it would give a wider insight to those who have never lived in a small town such as Four Oaks that living in such a culturally diverse and caring area can make living there more than worthwhile.
