When you are from New York, like Chicago, you can be pretty particular about your pizza. Arrogant some might say, and they would probably be correct. Here in Southern Pines we have two favorite pizza spots! If you are looking for that New York style pizza we recommend So Pies NY Pizzeria at 130 West New Hampshire Ave. We always ask for the crust to be extra crispy and they never disappoint! Great news - they now deliver!
If you would prefer a great specialty pizza with a great glass of wine P.zza will never disappoint. This artisan wood fired pizza is located at 127 West Pennsylvania Ave. They also have great salads and small plates in case one of your dining friends just doesn't feel like pizza. The staff here is warm and wonderful and the smell from the street just draws you in!

Schools are always important when purchasing a home. Even for the buyer who does not have children. Parents with children will pay attention to school ratings and often design their home search to focus on certain schools. To be sure their children receive a strong education, studies show buyers will pay more for a home to be in the right district.
The National Association of Realtors recently shared a recent Redfin study using MLS databases and have discovered that buyers paid, on average, an additional $50 per square foot for homes within certain school districts during the period of May 1 to July 31, 2013.
If you are wondering where the best high school is here in Moore County we are proud to share the most recent U.S. News and World Report! U.S. News and World Report recently named their top high schools in North Carolina. They reviewed 31,242 U.S. public high schools and 97 North Carolina schools made the ranking. We are very proud of Pinecrest High School and the faculty right here in Southern Pines! They have been ranked #15 in North Carolina and #1383 nationally. Congratulations to our teachers and our students for all of their hard work!
