if anyone can tell me what is there to do in goldsboro? I thinking of taking a job at at&t call center there. How far is the mall where do you shop? How about the schools because i have a 3 soon to be 4 year old. If my family moves there what is there to do for fun? Are there activites such as gymnastics, swimming, or dance for my 3 year old to do. If not what is the next closest city to live in and commute to work if i take the job. If someone has knowledge of nc please email me or respond.:d mzrich2008@aol.com

Goldsboro is rural and small. I was at the Air Force Base for two years. I just retired and we are trying to sell or rent our house there. The mall is Ok but most folks go closer to Raleigh for shopping. There are many nice neihborhoods outside the town proper.

Our 4 Yoa daughter took ballet lessons at Goldsboro School of Ballet and loved it. I would highly recommend it.

The YMCA had a nice facility and an indoor pool. Our daughter also took swiming lessons there.

Goldsboro isn't as rural and small as it was several years ago. There are several good school districts and I'd check out Northwest and Rosewood for elementary. There are a couple of options for dance schools there and as faabla said, the YMCA has tons of programs. Shopping is getting better, depending on what you like. The mall still leaves a lot to be desired but recently they have opened several new shopping centers outside of the mall. You can direct message me if you have any other questions!

The mall is a glorified shopping center.
