The City of Goldsboro is the home of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and famous for the best barbeque in Eastern North Carolina. We are a destination with rich cultural and heritage roots, which captivates visitors and residents alike. Enjoy an afternoon paddling the Neuse River, spend an action-packed day at an outdoor recreational facility or pause in awe as F-15 E Strike Eagle jets soar across the sky. An hour east of the state capital and an easy drive to the coast. Goldsboro is the county seat of Wayne County.
