Goldsboro is the friendliest southern town in North Carolina! Many people come from all over to retire to Goldsboro. We are close to East Carolina University’s medical school, and the University of North Carolina and Duke University health care facilities are connected to our local hospital, UNC Wayne Memorial. It’s an excellent hospital with staff that provides excellent care. Our school system in Wayne County is tops, with new schools and additions always in progress. Only 100 miles from the coast, our sleepy little southern town is just right. Come down for a visit, and we’ll guarantee you’ll want to stay!
