North Knobs Township Reviews

There are probably 1 or 2 nice bars within a 15 minute radius. There is not much at all to do at night! The only food options late at night are basically McDonald's, Burger King, and Taco Bell. There is little variety of quality restaurants. The best-quality restaurants (which still are not high quality) are in Elkin, about 15 minutes away. Dodge City and Thai Cafe are examples.

The weather varies a lot from season to season. In the winter, Boonville gets very cold, below freezing frequently, and gets quite a bit of freezing/ snow issues during winter storms. Spring is moderately warm and pretty rainy. Summer is extremely HOT and sometimes dry, and fall is cool. It is most essential that people in this area have a wardrobe for extreme cold, extreme heat, and everything in between.
With very few companies, job availability is slim. UNIFI is one local business that is a high-employer, but they are the one of the few. For young people, job options are basically limited to fast food restaurants, a couple of server/hostess positions at restaurants, and grocery stores.
