The city of Spring Lake tries to throw community events but sadly it is very lacking in diversity. This goes for vendors, attractions, activities, and entertainment. Also, the lack of facilities like a movie theater, bowling alley, arcade closer, having to drive to Fayetteville or Sanford or Holly Springs to do something other than watch tv gets old. Also, the number of empty spots in the only shopping center in the town.

It's close to the base and not too far from things to do in Raleigh. There isn't much to do in town, but it's nicer than Fayetteville!
The outskirt communities of Spring Lake, to include Anderson Creek Club, are great. There is currently a lot of road and building construction, but the outlook is great. The future of Spring Lake is looking good!
