We are soon relocating to Lejeune. What are the best living areas off base for a young family (with newborn and 2 year old)? I would love to live in an area that is family friendly & that has plenty to do outdoors. We would really like to live near the beach, but then close to base. I'm leaning toward the town of Hubert but it seems so teeny tiny. All I have to go off of are photos & Google maps... I have no idea what these towns are like

Hubert is a collection of housing developments with a few service businesses. You will find that most of the residents are military families like yourselves. Swansboro has a small quaint town center. Either Swansboro or Hubert will put you between the base and the beach.

Between the base family services and the beaches and county parks and libraries, you will have plenty to do.

What rank is your husband? If he's at least an NCO honestly the best place to live is on base in Watkins Village, Berkley Manor, or Heroes Manor. That's where the neighborhoods are the most family friendly because everyone has kids. The closest beach, Onslow Beach, is on the base. Not to mention Wallace Creek Nature Trail and Greenway and all of the other myriad trails and recreational areas on the base (i.e. French Creek, River Rd, Paradise Point, Hospital Point and more). There are also community pools in the housing areas. In addition the traffic coming on base in the morning is horrendous. I'm normally not a fan of living on base, but Lejeune is the one exception,as can be seen by the number of people who have been in the area for a while that are moving on base housing from out in town.
