“Hardly a weekend passes without a Town-sponsored family activity in a local park or downtown, whether it’s a free movie or concert during the warmer months or a seasonal event such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt or the Happy Holly Days Parade.”
So states the Town of Holly Springs website, and we couldn’t agree more. Holly Springs has seen major growth in the past years (in fact, from 1990 to 2010, the population climbed from less than 1,000 to over 22,000!), but that hasn’t changed the overall spirit and sense of community that makes the town a truly unique and special place to call home. Sure, it’s got plenty of new shopping centers and restaurants, fantastic new communities and fabulous homes. But it’s retained that hometown feel of neighborly connection and Southern hospitality that have made it—in short—one of the Triangle’s best-loved little towns.
So come and explore Holly Springs. Discover its lovely neighborhoods and its hopping attractions. Hike through its parks, swim in its lakes, partake in a festival or parade. Come experience the Holly Springs lifestyle.
