Youngsville, while a small rural town, has a vibrant community, as seen in everything from the small businesses--the coffee hut is a favorite--to the parks to larger attractions, such as Panic Point. The diversity makes life more interesting, as it allows young people especially to learn and be immersed in a variety of cultures. I wish the schools could be better funded, but I'm not sure what could be done about this.

I have been raised in Youngsville, North Carolina my whole life, while being given opportunities to grow as an individual outside of school. I participated in dance classes and recitals, art classes, cheer-leading at a local church, and volunteering.
I have really loved living on Youngsville for the past 9 almost 10 years or so. There's something about living in a rural area that you can't get in the city with all of it's bright lights. Although Youngsville doesn't exactly have a "nightlife," it does however have an extremely vibrant night sky, something you can't find in the city. And although the travelling distance is far, Youngsville makes up for this with its privacy and large property lots. While I'm excited to be moving into downtown this fall, I'm very sad that I won't be able to experience the country rural life on a long-term basis anymore, at least not for a while. Youngsville is definitely my favorite place to live, and I would recommend it to anyone seeking a quiet refuge from the craziness of this world.
