There are a number of transplants in that area and that go to those schools (Ashley/Murray/Anderson complex)....its walking distance into the Veterans Park where there is always something going on.

I would say the area gets better and better every year as more development and redevelopment takes place...its not the highest end community in the Wilmington area (its well outside of actual Wilmington) but you certainly should find it more low key than Long Island. You will love the weather compared to LI.

BTW, try Britt's donuts on the Carolina Beach boardwalk when you get there...a must go place for kids and an institution in that part of the world.

you will run into people from NY everywhere you go, and the recent trend is to move families there. no reason to be nervous. wilmington is just like anywhere else.

KimeeeNY,

Best of luck on your endeavor. We too, are looking to move to Wilmington from Boston area. Admittedly I'm a bit nervous though. Been reading a lot of forums with a lot of frustrated locals-agitated about all the Northern transplants. Obviously I can't give too much weight to angry forum posts (forums seem to sometimes bring out the worst in people, especially in the moment) but still. Anyway best luck. Maybe when I get down there our families can meet and we can hate each other because I'm from Boston and you're from New York. just kidding.

Don't be afraid. It's a great place to move to, esp. if you like the beach, food, and outdoor activities.

We moved to ENC from LI last year and are happy so far. The weather, lower cost, and slower pace are big positives. The region is growing and changing for the better, in part because of all us northerners migrating south. We bought our house based on school reviews and it seems we chose right. Trust the research you did, seek out the things that interest you down here, and you will be happy.

Thank God for you sanctimonious Yankees. What would we ever do without you?
