I have been a resident of Hope Mills for about 18 years and I believe it has it's perks but also its difficulties. One of the perks is it has a very diverse and good amount of markets, schools, and shops needed at a very convenient distance. But there are no wide range of great opportunities for job especially for teenagers that's a great range or that is easy to obtain. I would also like to see more activities for children and teenagers to be able to enjoy and a better living commun

I have lived in Hope Mills most of my life and love it. It is an up and coming area, always growing. New shops, residential areas and tons of recreational activities. Hope Mills is relatively safe and clean. Plenty of diverse and affordable restaurants to choose from. Best part about Hope Mills is the affordable housing from apartments to houses, this town has it all.
I have a very good experience living in Hope Mills the past 17 years. The town is right outside of Fayetteville, about an hour or so from
Raleigh/Durham, about 2 hours from Myrtle Beach, 2+ hours from Charlotte and only a little over 5 hours to Atlanta. The people are pretty friendly and its growing at a nice pace with additions of restaurants, retail stores and entertainment/activities for the whole family. Housing is very accommodating whether you are interested in large , small, apartments, townhomes or something in between...the variety is here.
