Hope Mills is a nice area with a variety of things to see. It often gets traffic, but that just shows how much of a diverse community we have. There are many new things like restaurants and roads added onto the town. And, there are many places to choose from to eat in the area. Along with different attractions like the movies, mini golf, the mall, outlets, and even a local lake. The town is commonly friendly and the education system tries their best to implement community service into their scholarly activities to help encourage people to help out in our community and town.

The only good experience I have had is meeting, marrying and moving in with my husband. The employment availability is scarce to none and what ive observed of the collaborative overall education of the lifelong residents leaves much to be desired. Its pretty but looks cab be deceiving. FYI, the frequent sound of gunshots and cannons aren't always Fort Bragg to blame for...
We have lived in Hope Mills for 2 years now, after about 18 years in Fayetteville and two years in Spring Lake Nc. I can unicely say, Hope Mills is the best!
