Pittsboro is a amazing small town here in North Carolina. It's really peaceful, you mostly see no crime here, the nightlife here is great! It starting to expand a little more because of Chatham Park, and if I needed to change something it would be that because I like my quiet small town.
I have lived in Pittsboro my entire life. I have always appreciated this town for its safety. The things that I would change are the available places open late for students. There are none! That is super inconvenient. I would also hope to see more accessible public transport in the future.
