Southern Pines is the second largest municipality in the county and is nationally known for its equestrian activity and beautiful, expansive horse farms.  At the heart of Southern Pines’ “Horse Country”, is the Walthour-Moss Foundation, an unspoiled preserve of almost 4,000 acres with miles of riding trails.  Another pristine preserve in Southern Pines is Weymouth Woods, almost 900 acres of natural Sandhills terrain, including an exhibit hall where visitors can engage in interactive displays about the flora, fauna and history of the area.

The downtown area features a myriad of picturesque shops, cafes and professional businesses, in addition to the renovated historic Train Station which also serves as a Visitors Center.  Southern Pines combines a thriving commercial and industrial base with a diversity of cultural, historical and recreational offerings.

The Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities, for example, is a cultural center offering a chamber music series, lecture series and writers series, as well as a writers-in-residence program.  Southern Pines is also home to Pine Needles Resort & Golf Club, host to the 1996, 2001 and 2007 U.S. Women’s Open Championships.
