Tarboro is a small town with some big town conveniences such as Papa Johns, Jersey Mike's, Walmart, and Lowe's.
I have lived here for 8 years now and it has been a great experience. The community connects very well and almost everyone knows each other. There are many activities to do around the town with many areas to commute or you could travel to other places because of the location Tarboro is at.
