The same question has been asked several times recently. The quick answer is the Myrtle Grove area (alias Monkey Junction), but it partially depends on your budget and the ages of your children and their interests. Do you have any special requirements for a gated community, golf, special education needs, etc? You might look at these threads for ideas. The one with asterisks is especially relevant. Then if you have questions about specific areas, please post them.

There are a lot of good family areas, I consider the best to be in the city. Consider starting with the Elem school angle...Parsley, Holly Tree, Ogden....

I also think family friendly lies in the location to parks...there are some good parks in the Wilmington area...Ogden, Hugh McRae, Veterans and Halyburton (and to a lesser extent Wade)....there are neighborhoods with easy access to Veterans Park and those schools. I can tell you that Pine Valley has taken off in terms of families, partly because of its proximity to Halyburton and the Cross City Trail as well as feeding into Roland Grise and Hoggard.

The South Oleander area can be very family friendly, but many in that area are private schooled.

Shopping is located in three general areas (not counting Monkey Junction, which is not regional)...the Mall area at Independence and Oleander, the Mayfaire area at Eastwood and Military Cut-off and the Market and College Rd areas just north of UNCW. The most family friendly places would be near the mall.

I would check out the Ogden area. I have heard really good things about the schools in this area.
