Hi all im new to this so go easy

i am currently living in the UK and was looking to move "across the pond" with my partner and our 2 sons.

i have only just started researching the move so am really just looking just now but for some reason i really fancy NC (namely Wilmington)i dont know why as i have never seen or heard much about it but just through the wonders of the WWW.

i am currently working in electronics repair but am also studying IT and my other half has worked in child care and office admin(is there much work in any of these fields)

also is there any areas to avoid at all costs? if im honest it wouldnt have to be Wlilmington i quite like the look of Charlotte too.

any help anyone can give would be really appreciated

thanks in advance

The area right around Greenfield Lake and the port have a lot of dirty, heavy industry, smaller houses, and that's where the local leaders built a lot of public housing for the poor over the years.

Then just across 17th street, around the Cape Fear Country club, you have all the old money.

From 17th and Shipyard, it really depends on which direction you go from that intersection, and how far.
