Roxboro is quiet and charming. Historical Uptown Roxboro has plenty of little shops to browse and buy in, and strolling up and down Main Street does the soul good. Everything is close, as this is a small town, and everyone knows everybody, so we have a sense of community here. We have a lively art scene, with the Kirby Theatre always putting on a show, whether it be a concert or a play. We have a rich visual art market, with local artists and art students constantly contributing to our local galleries. It may not be a big city, but there's still plenty to do here, and it's a very nice place to call home.

There is some good food in Roxboro. The schooling options are adequate from my experience. There is not much to do, but the town is placed somewhat comfortably between Danville / South Boston and Durham / Chapel Hill, meaning it is a safe distance drive to places where you can actually do stuff.
I would love to see my restaurants! With such a small town, there needs to be more. I would love to see a chick-fil-a. Also, I would love to see more shopping places. There are a few, but not many. I love my small town! There needs to be more events to bring people together.
