Zebulon is an average small town. The community park is great for families and those who want to stay active and the farmers' market is a good community event. The small businesses and restaurants around town are pretty typical and it's not an especially tight-knit community.

Zebulon is a wonderful small town. Great neighborhoods and a close connected community. Lots of restaurants and business. Located off of highway 64 in North Carolina
I love Zebulon because it's a small and quiet town and everyone knows everybody. The only thing that I would change about Zebulon is the restaurant choices. There's not a lot of options to choose from. I would love to see more restaurants in the future.
