42 Regional Attractions Do you love the snow or the sand? The mountains or the beach? Playing golf or watching the NFL? Going shopping or going to the theater? Here's our answer: all of the above. In North Carolina, you don't have to just choose what to do, you have to choose what to do first! Goldsboro is located about halfway between the beautiful beaches and the vibrant and growing cities of Raleigh and Durham – all with plenty to do in a day trip. Beyond this two-hour radius, you can easily reach the mountains, more beaches, lakes, forests, world-class golf courses and so much more.

Goldsboro is just east of the piedmont in the beginning of the lush coastal plain. Once you've settled in Goldsboro, hop on the highway for a weekend, or weeklong, getaway.
