I was trying not to post (rather, I read existing posts because there are so many) but I can't find any info on Castle Hayne, NC.
What I am looking for is a nice, small town in the south, preferably in North/South Carolina or northeast Florida. I came across Castle Hayne but can't find anything about the place!!! Any information would be appreciated!! Thank you
I live pretty close to Castle Hayne. I've been here in NC for about 15 years. One year in Hampstead and the rest in a very small town 25 minutes from Wilmington. My town is rural and we have a population of under 300 people in town but many more around the area. I'm from up north or a Yankee say down here. I love it here and would not want to live anywhere else. Yes my area is rural but don't let that scare you off. The people here are wonderful and its a great place to raise kids. I was worried that people would not except us here but I was wrong. My neighbors are very friendly and come over to talk, bring me plants for my garden etc. We have a very active community with a lot of activities for the family. I am still only 25 minutes from downtown Wilmington and the beach. I would look at Wilmington but also do a search for up to 30 miles outside of that area. Maybe look at Burgaw, Kelly, Atkinson or Rocky Point.
Oh and Yes we have recycling and trash pick-up. Every week for trash and every other Wed for the recycling.
