Goldsboro has small-town charm with convenient big city access less than an hour to Raleigh and only a 90-minute drive to the beautiful Carolina beaches. Both Goldsboro and Wayne County are in good financial shape while having low property taxes and one of the lower costs of living within eastern North Carolina.
