Quality of Life

The Benson lifestyle is a study in contrasts. We're close enough to the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area to take full advantage of all the shopping, dining, entertainment, and cultural amenities that a bustling and rapidly growing metropolis has to offer. Yet we're far enough away to preserve the qualities that make Benson so special:
  • Affordable living in safe neighborhoods
  • Citizens who take great pride in their community and great interest in making it better
  • Family-centered way of life
  • Relaxed pace

  4. Sports & Recreation

    A mild four-season climate and proximity to rural areas combine to make Benson a paradise for outdoor recreation enthusiasts.
