QUALITY OF LIFE

in Robeson County

WHAT TRULY MATTERS

If you think our Interstate logistics are attractive, wait ‘til you see what’s in store down the side roads of Robeson County — a wealth of recreational opportunities that rival any in the country, many of which can be enjoyed year round in our mild four-season climate.

Our region is home to more than 200 golf courses, including those in world renowned Pinehurst and Myrtle Beach.

The pristine beaches of North and South Carolina attract vacationers from all over the eastern U.S. As a resident of Robeson County, you can be sunning on the sand in little more than an hour.

Enjoy camping, hiking, fishing or hunting? Good, because woods and wildlife are in abundant supply here. What about spectator sports? The NFL, NBA, NHL and NASCAR racing are all a short drive away.

Of course, quality of life isn’t all about recreation. Our area is rich with historic and cultural attractions, too. Our schools are excellent, and our health care is state-of-the-art.

Comfortably sized communities, relaxed lifestyle, low cost of living; with bonuses like these, you’ll have no problem recruiting talented employees.
