Mebane homes and real estate are becoming the talk of the town. Known as the small town nestled between two big regions, Mebane's location is highly desirable for those who need easy access to the Triad (Greensboro, High Point, and Winston Salem) and the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill). Often the homebuyers who begin looking for homes for sale in Chapel Hill, Durham NC homes, or Hillsborough NC properties will eventually recognize the excellent values available in Mebane real estate--and head west.
Located mainly in Alamance County, real estate in Mebane extends a short distance into Orange County (east of Alamance County). The Town is about 7.6 square miles with a population of approximately 10,000. The Town of Chapel Hill is about 20 miles southeast of Mebane and the City of Durham is about 24 miles east of the Town of Mebane.
With Interstate 40 and Interstate 85 both going through Mebane, homebuyers and businesses are increasingly considering Mebane's convenience. In addition, both the Piedmont International Airport in Greensboro to the west and Raleigh-Durham International Airport to the east are easily accessible from Mebane using I-85 and I-40.
The same is true for employment. The Triad and the Triangle regions offer employment opportunities that sometimes allow family members to go their separate directions for work and meet back home in a relaxed community at the end of the workday.
Although entertainment and activities in neighboring towns are popular, the small community bustles with its own activities that allow it to shine. For example, the annual Dogwood Festival has become a tradition, bringing neighbors and friends outside during one of the most beautiful times of the year. The festival includes a golf tournament, carnival rides, art, crafts, and entertainment for everyone.
Noted for good barbeque, the town draws folks from other areas to enjoy the cookin'. One favorite is A & M Grill, reviewed by Michael Stern for Roadfood.com when the Sterns stopped by on Highway 70 (on the Hillsborough side of town). A & M has been around since World War II. Although now updated, customers still leave knowing that A & M is the real McCoy.
Of Paula Dean fame, Smithfield's Bar-B-Q is a short distance from A & M. It is easier to access from I-40. Smithfield's Bar-B-Q is a favorite stop for families traveling I-40 and I-85 on the way to the beach or to the mountains. Often there are Smithfield online coupons that are easily printed and tucked into a pocket before leaving home.
