I love the quietness and stillness of Mebane. Also, Mebane tends to have a little cheaper services than surrounding cities. For an example, compared to Durham, Burlington and Greensboro, Mebane's gas is cheaper. Also the taxes on food at restaurants and grocery stores is cheaper in Mebane. Lastly, I love that Mebane is growing. When I first moved to Mebane in 2010 there were not many businesses. However, there are many more thriving businesses in Mebane now including: Starbucks, Hershey BBQ, iNails, and more. If you are looking for a place to live, enjoy and save money Mebane is the place to go!

Mebane is a small city in North Carolina and it is also where I have lived since I was born. I actually love my city because there is always something to do. We have resturants, a mall, a bowling alley and we have a festival that takes place in April every year. This festival is called the Dogwood Festival it is when everyone in not only Mebane but other cities come together and listen to the live bands, eat from food trucks and play little carnival games. Mebane will forever and always have a place in my heart no matter where I go.
I love Mebane! It's a great town. We have a wonderful, walk-able downtown with shops and antiques. People are always friendly and it is a great place to grow up.
