I just wanted to point out, being conservative doesn't make one unaccepting or intolerant. I'm conservative and, true, some conservative people can be very rude and mean. But so can some liberals. It goes both ways. Too many people are "tolerant" only when they're being agreed with, both liberal and conservative. We all just need to work hard to do better. Please, don't take me wrong. I'm not trying to be preachy or anything, really. I just don't want anyone to be turned off by someone being conservative. I mean, I think I'm a pretty nice guy (ha, ha)!!! Again, glad you enjoyed your trip despide the rain!!!
Until March of this year, I lived in downtown Wilmington for 11 years and, after visiting all other metro areas in NC, I think Wilmington is far from conservative. I would have to say that Asheville and Wilmington are the most open-minded and liberal communities in all of N.C. As an openly gay male, I can say that I have never had any issues or concerns with my lifestyle and still have a large group of friends that I visit regularly. I moved to Raleigh for a job (huge mistake) and I miss the beach and my old riverfront haunts. More than I thought I would.

The skate park at Greenfield Lake, installed a couple of years ago, is one of the best things that the city did for its youth. They now have a safe place to skate.
