Quaint Small Town - 7/26/2009
Tarboro is a small town, but big on hospitality. The people are very friendly and helpful. I moved here almost 4 yrs ago and neighbors welcomed me to the neighborhood with pies, bread and plants. Where do you find that anymore? Main street is lined with old Victorian homes that are just beautiful. The people who own them take great pride in preserving their history. Wonderful town to walk downtown and visit the shops, stop and chat with other 'Tarboronians'.

Now, for the 'down' side. Tarboro does not have much to offer in the way of recreation and entertainment. It has to much fast food and to many 'country fried food' resturants. There are very few decent places to eat, and with those you do get tired of eating the same menu over and over. There is a quality hospital here, but not enough doctors. The doctors don't last long here because there is a lot of indigent care. There is nothing for young people, teenagers and children to do. The school system is very poor. Read More

Tarboro, please don't waste your time!!! - 7/8/2009
There is nothing here. Nothing for kids to do, nothing for adults to do. The schools are terrible. Your kids will not have a chance in life if they go to Tarboro city schools. The police harrass everyone. Teenagers can't even walk down the street without being stopped and searched for no reason. My 15 year old son has been "talked to" by the town cops over 24 times in the last 2 years and has not been charged with any offenses because he has not done anything wrong. They just like to harrass. My husband was given a traffic ticket and the cop didn't even see him do anything wrong, someone called the cop and told him. The cop called my husband to the police station and questioned him. My husband told the truth, got the ticket and then was told by the officer that it was called in, not seen by the cop. They Tarboro Police will use any lies to get what they want. BEWARE OF THIS SMALL TOWN!! There are gangs here, and the police are one of the gangs. Actually, the police are more dangerous Read More

Small town - 6/19/2009
Tarboro is a small town and honestly there is nothing to do here. I have lived here for 4 yrs (my family have lived here much longer, and you have to drive 16-20 miles to dine out. There is one really good classy resturant in town, the rest are the "country cooking" little red checked tablecloth one room restaurants. The downtown area is quaint with beautiful victorian homes, but they are way over priced for this area.

Cost of living is high. The town and county property taxes are way to high. Your tax appraisal is way above the actual appraisal of your property if you attempt to sell. Utilities are high. It's really unaffordable for us to live here. There is a lot of the "good ole boy" politics here too. Anyway, it is just not the town for Read More
