The economy is the major detraction here. Other than that, it's an amazing place to live. Schools are average, depending on where you're coming from but they've improved in the last decade. I live in "mid-town" and couldn't be happier. I'm 15 minutes from both beaches, w/out summertime traffic, and 15 mins from downtown. It, supposedly, has the better school districts and the housing is affordable. You're not going to get rich down here, unless you are extremely motivated and lucky, but the quality of life is amazing. It's lacking in some of the areas that some larger cities are not, like sports teams, quality nightlife (i.e. music and restaurants). That's fine for me coming from a larger city and knowing that Raleigh/Chapel Hill and Charlotte aren't too far away.

On another note, after further reflection on BustedShards posts I have also noticed some of the genius going into how he formulates them. Definitely becoming a fan... I'm going to write a country song about him.

- Carolina Beach
My wife and I are actually moving to Carolina Beach next month from PA. We have been visiting there for years and everything has worked out this year with my wife landing a great teaching job just over the bridge to CB. Such a great area, people are really nice, beautiful beaches, and that nice slow Southern vibe. It's very refreshing from the fast paced rat race up here in the Northeast.
If you want any help with the actual moving process, realtors, and the people who have been helping us out I would be more than glad to give you some info.

Whoever thinks any state North of NC is better is a moron. North Carolina is the best place on the east coast to live - nice people and laid back life style.... I grew up in the Outerbanks and moved to Wilmington to go to school (UNCW). I graduated and moved to VA Beach (job offer) for 4 months and absolutely hated it and moved back... if you think the summer traffic is bad to Wrightsville Beach, try the everyday traffic in Hampton Roads! I have lived in Wilmington for about 6 years and honestly love it. Definitely has a consistant wave, but never gets really epic like the outerbanks does. I work a corporate job downtown, but get up and surf everymorning before work. Some schools are bad and some are good... just have to do your research.

Hanna... You're last comment said that I was young (early 20s) a troll (hardly) and has never been anywhere (I've travelled to every continent). Do yourself a favor and take the tobacco out of your mouth while you're listening to Garth brooks and say it to my face.

Hey I live in Kure Beach and lived in Wilmington for 10 years. I love it. Like dloren said if you live on the island you never wanna leave and sorta live in a little community where everyone knows each other. Very friendly.. Chill... And the last two days we've had waist to head high sets rolling through...it gets crazy on the 3 big holidays in the summer but there's always a place to surf... And busting airs is full of it. Everything he says is copied and pasted off wiki... His so called surfboards are the exact dimensions of Kelly slater and taj burrows boards. He probably just googled "Kelly slater surfboard" and pulled it off there... I mean, who goes from nj waves to surfing jaws??

At first you had amusement value. Mainly due to your ignorance & seeming lack of self-consciousness. Now? We're hearing a twit spewing inane verbal shpeckle. Here's the plan. Go back to your bedroom, festooned as it is with Slater posters. Try your best not to ejaculate on the champion. Do your laundry tomorrow; your mom is upset about the sticky stuff, kid.
