I'm looking for any and all information on Winterville-climate, winters, amount of average snowfall, what kind of a community is it-are there older homes in the area or just new developments. What are the property taxes like?

We're looking to possibly relocate in either the Winterville or Wake Forest area in several years when we retire and want a nice quiet peaceful place.

Any information would be great

I grew up right outside of Winterville, so I know a thing or two about it....

Winterville is a suburb of Greenville that lies directly south of the city. Development has been booming for the past decade with the growth of Greenville. Lots of subdivisions have sprung up, so a lot of homes in the area are new. Most of the older homes lie in the downtown area on and right off Railroad, Main, and Cooper Streets.

Expect hot, humid summers with temps occasionally reaching triple digits in late July-August. Winters are mild, however they have seem to have gotten colder in recent years. Average temps during the winter are 30-40's during the day and will occasionally dip into the teens at night, but not very often. Snow is not a common occurence in eastern NC, however in the past couple of years, it has been above average. I'd say an average snowfall over the years has been around 4 inches (ball park figure).

I'm not sure about property taxes, as I lived outside of Winterville in the country during my time there.

The town hosts a Watermelon Festival in late August which features big named bands and other activities. There are a lot of small hamburger/sub shops throughout the town. The Dixie Queen is a popular seafood restaurant in Winterville, and people from all over the region come to dine there. It has some of the best seafood in the state, in my opinion.

I'd stay away from south Railroad and Mill Streets, as that area seems to generate the most crime. Violent crime is rare, but has been known to happen. Most of the criminal activity include crimes such as car break-ins, robbery, trespassing...etc.

All in all, I'd say Winterville is a nice place to live. The area is one of the fastest growing areas of the state. Outside of the Winterville/Greenville area is very rural, and lots of outdoor activies such as hunting, fishing, camping are abundant. I plan to move back there when I retire from the military.

Didn't realize this was a necropost. I guess I typed that all out for nothing.

Thank you V for the great post.
We have lived in the "country" of Winterville for the last 8 yrs. We live in a sub-division & pay a total of $1,700 city & county tax a year. It has really grown considerably in 8 yrs. and traffic is terrible every afternoon going through Greenville.
