Mt. Holly is a cute little up & coming town. You get the perks of small country living without being out in the country! Close knit communities, faimly friendly neighborhoods & great school system.
The community in my town is very close. I grew up and went to school with almost the same kids I began playing with as a toddler. People make my town a place for life long residency because it is very safe and quiet. Also my community is very pet friendly. We have a very large park and half of it is gated off for just dogs and their owners. Another thing that is good about my community is their are frequent events and chances for the town to come together. Examples of this include the small farmers market in the summer, festivals for the new seasons and recreation sports events. My community is not perfect and could use some added restaurants but all in all it is enjoyable.
