Because Southern Pines combines the north, south, old and new, it is especially appealing to the people who live and visit. Southern Pines was founded around 1820 as a stopover point on the only north and south railroad on the eastern seaboard. Over the years this charming mid-south town evolved into a resort community with horses and golf as the main attractions.
Small Town Meets City Life!
Southern Pines is kind of mix of southern hospitality and New England charm, infused with the energy of great restaurants, small shops, craft breweries, farmers markets, wonderful parks, live music, tons of active, sporting and cultural activities for folks of every age. Live in a downtown bungalow or condo, a larger home between town and Weymouth Woods or a farm in adjacent horse country.
Today, Southern Pines, with just over 16,000 residents, offers a unique and appealing combination of resort, retirement and contemporary residential real estate. Its eclectic neighborhoods surround a quaint and inviting business/shopping village with tree lined streets, an excellent selection of restaurants to satisfy any appetite, art galleries and shops that offer a full range of clothing and gift items.
In addition, the local Sunrise Theatre host musical, theatrical and cinema events. The old movie theatre has been transformed into a community arts center that offers national acts, foreign films and community plays. Anyone interested in combining city life with the charm of a small town will feel right at home.
