Thomasville is a pretty trashy town. It is full of Trump supporting rednecks, rednecks, and idiots. The town is dying due to the main source of money going out of business. The town is pretty obese, due to all of the fast food restaurants, there's a gas station on every corner, and there's one library, not that anyone here knows how to read. Thomasville culture is setting off fireworks on not just every major holiday, but the entire week of the holiday. If someone were to hit one of the many deer that roam around, they would most likely just take it home for dinner. At least we don't have KKK meetings here, I'm looking at you, Denton.

I grew up in Thomasville but must say the city and county have let the roads turn to crap. There are different spots that have the same problems but around National Highway it seems that crime has gotten bad. Meth heads are in abundance!
Thomasville is a small town in North Carolina that used to be a bustling furniture town. It no longer manufactures furniture, but is still very alive. With many traditions and activities to do, this town is a perfect place to settle down with families. Thomasville is beautiful, with many rural spots, and a great variety of restaurants. It is only a couple hours away from the East Coast beaches, and minutes away from mountains and wonderful hiking trails.
