You may have never heard of Holly Springs, NC, but the name itself evokes some peaceful images that are indicative of life there. Located just southwest of Raleigh, Holly Springs made CNN Money’s 100 Top Places to Live list 10 years ago, and the area has grown exponentially since. As of the 2010 census, the town population was 24,661, over 2½ times its population in 2000. The best-kept secret is a secret no more! Here are some of the top reasons why you should make Holly Springs your new home.
The city’s proximity to Highway 1 make it the ideal bedroom community. Whether you own your own business, or are helping someone else run theirs, it’s a great jumping off point for commuters. Many major companies reside in the nearby Research Triangle Park, including the likes of IBM, DuPont and Bayer, just to name a few.
Being in the heart of North Carolina also is an enviable asset. We’re only a short drive from beautiful beaches (just two hours east) and the awe-inspiring Blue Ridge Mountains (three hours west).
Small town amenities
