Enjoy Life and Retirement in a City That’s Certified Among the Nation’s Best for Seniors
With a proud history that dates all the way back to 1780, Asheboro is today a progressive city that honors its past all while charging ahead towards a bright and inclusive future. Our amenities and location in the Piedmont Triad have long made the city a hub for industry and transportation, with large, multinational corporations (Energizer and others) attracting talented workers and their families to our area.
Perhaps best known for being home to the North Carolina Zoo, whose more than 1,000 animals represent the continents of Africa and North America, the city is also a prime destination for regional and international dining, sports and recreation, and much more. Magnolia 23, for example, is among the nation’s top-rated for fried chicken and signature Southern fare, while Central Bakery has been an Asheboro institution for more than 70 years.
Seniors and young families alike can immerse themselves in Asheboro’s superb entertainment options, which might include the Historic Sunset Theatre and the American Classic Motorcycle Museum, which is home to one of the largest private Harley-Davidson collections in the U.S. Nature and history lovers will want to visit the Uwharrie National Forest and the Pisgah Covered Bridge, which is one of two remaining covered bridges state-wide. The North Carolina Aviation Museum & Hall of Fame is also a terrific option for seeing history books come to life.
Plentiful parks and recreation sites, professional sports teams like the Asheboro Copperheads of the Coastal Plain League, and a host of seasonal events and festivals further complement the area’s options for living well and having fun. An amazing downtown redevelopment has also earned Asheboro state and national honors, including distinctions of North Carolina Main Street City and being named a past All-America City by the National Civic League. Asheboro is also a North Carolina Certified Retirement Community, only adding to its allure.
For the familiar comforts of small-town living with all the fun and possibilities of a much larger city, Asheboro provides a perfect setting for living well and enjoying life right here in the heartland of beautiful North Carolina.
