The Sanford Area includes the
City of Sanford (pop. 24,000), the
Broadway (pop. 1085), and the
County of Lee, with a total population of approximately
50,000. The Sanford area offers family living at its best, preserving the
beauty and charm of its days as a small southern railway town, and blending
it with a thoroughly modern and diverse economic base, a friendly, progressive
populace, and efficient, fiscally responsible local government.
Sanford is also fortuitously located in the geographic heart of North Carolina,
with convenient access to the amenities of the world-renowned Research Triangle
to our north, and the equally renowned golf courses and resorts of Pinehurst
and Southern Pines in the Sandhills to our south. While our moderate climate
and four distinct seasons make life a pleasure year-round, for those who like
even more variety, we’re a mere two hours from the sunny shores of the
Atlantic and just three hours from the pristine streams and evergreen forests
of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Whether you are looking for a new place to call home, or simply interested
in a great place to visit, welcome again to our fine community from the more
than 600 Sanford area businesses who are the Sanford Area Chamber of Commerce.
We have worked hard to create a favorable climate for business, promote economic
growth and enhance the quality of life for the entire community, and we think
that you will be pleased with the result. As you take a look around our site,
we hope you find what you are seeking; if not, please feel free to drop us
