Holly Springs Named One of the Nation’s Best Small Cities

Holly Springs Best Small Towns in America

Seeking a convenient Triangle suburb to call home? Holly Springs is a good choice. Located less than 20 miles from downtown Raleigh and 23 miles from the renowned Research Triangle Park, the emerging town just ranked seventh on WalletHub’s 2016 list of the Best Small Cities in America.

The financial website reviewed more than 1,250 cities throughout the nation with populations between 25,000 and 100,000 against 30 different variants. Criteria considered included affordability, economic health, quality of life, education and health, and safety. Holly Springs was the only North Carolina town to score a place among the top 20 locations recognized.

This is not the first time the Western Wake town has earned acclaim as a great place for families to live. Just before the start of 2016, HomeSnacks named Holly Springs the second happiest place in North Carolina, following closely behind top-ranked Apex. The town also earned recognition as the safest town in North Carolina by real estate resource Neighborhood Scout in February.
