Growing up in Graham, where everything is small and local' schools, restaurants, entertainment, I would say I have had a positive experience. I have grown up and made and hand full of memories with the friends and families I am graduating with just locally. I have seen graham grow into a bigger town, attracting more people, but still having people appreciate the history and environment of the Graham. Graham offers a variety of job opportunities especially for younger people just getting into the workforce. Graham is taken care of and I can proudly say that when I choose to come back to my hometown, after college and as I get older, it will have grown into an even bigger town, still having its history appreciated by everyone. I only have confidence in that because of the experiences I had while I grew up in Graham.
Need a car if not in a town, no sidewalks in some areas. A good donut place called Daily Donuts if willing to make the trip!
