The Town of Elon is a growing city and proud of who we are. We are home to Elon University, which was ranked #1 Regional Southern University by US News and World Report for 2019. We are also home to a thriving small business community and strive to be entrepreneur friendly. Our downtown is filled with students, residents, and visitors all partaking of the wonderful flavors of our local restaurants, many of which are locally owned and operated.
