Things to Do
Benson is home to the largest festival held in Johnston County -- Mule Days celebrates our agricultural heritage with mule judging and race events, music, vendors, food, carnivals, and rodeos. Benson has one of the most charming downtowns in North Carolina with special events, parks, shopping, and dining. If you travel with your pets, you will find the 3-acre Benson Dog Park conveniently located to the Hampton Inn, which is also dog-friendly.
We welcome the newest member of the Beer, Wine, and Shine Trail to Benson...Fainting Goat Brewing Co. and near by, visitors may enjoy Broadslab Distillery, GALOT Motorsports Park, and Gregory Vineyards.
Hope to see you soon in Benson!
