Hi we are interested in living on the coast and have 3 teen sons. What areas are the best for them to meet others their age? Initially we liked the looks of pamlico county...from maps, due to our desire to sail. We would love to live on the water and those areas seemed more reasonable with good access to many sailing destinations. Of course our boys come first so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, CJ

I would guess that you need to find an area you like and then look for a subdivision or community with your boys in mind.

We live in the western end of Carteret County. My site with area info is called Southern Outer Banks.

We have lots of sail boats passing through on the Intracoastal but outside of that our sounds are more suitable for skiffs than sailing.

Here is the info on Carteret County Schools.

Oriental bills itself as the sailing capital of NC, but I have never been there so I can't help.

You can find quick census data on NC Counties at this interactive map. Just click on the county.

You can find climate data at this link.

If you plug in your own zip code, you can get an idea of how your current heating and cooling requirements compare to any area.

Click here (broken link) for an explanation of CCD and HDD.

You might also want to check out NC's flood maps. They can save you a lot of trouble.

Had someone given me the choice to live here as a teenager, I would have jumped on it, but I love to fish and do also sorts of outdoor things.

Come visit Emerald Isle, enjoy the beaches and see how you like it.

If I can answer any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch.

Default Move To Oriental

If you need schools forget about it, Retirees make up most of the people that live there. there are no jobs unless you can farm or fish. there are alot of sail boats and great water but for teens there is nothing to do.

Would you consider the SC coast? There are a few nice areas south of Myrtle Beach that have good access to the ocean, Winyah Bay & the ICW. It is also only an hour or so by car to Charleston. I'm in Pawleys Island, which is a very family friendly community, and the schools are good.
