I live in Flagstaff AZ and have a chance to move to Beaufort NC and I was wondering if anyone could tell me a little about the opportunities there.

If you are looking for job opportunities, the best place to look is the Carteret County News-Times.

There are also jobs in Jacksonville and New Bern.

If you are looking at business opportunities, I can point you to one of the local business brokers.

You might want to check out my Beaufort Travel Guide (http://coastalnc.org/beaufortnctravelguide - broken link) and my Southern Outer Banks website.

I would be glad to talk by telephone if you want to give me a ring after the holiday. My contact info is on my my Coastal Carolina Blog.

Default re

I used to live there, good jobs are scarce. Not much to do if you're into more than beach activities. Winter there is about as dead as dead can get. Very pretty nature though, and the people are very nice. Fresh seafood is good as well, and it does pick up with tourism in the warm months. Beaufort itself isn't a very pretty town once you get back a few streets from the waterfront, majority of it is poor. Land and houses are very expensive in a lot of places, you don't really get a lot of bang for your buck, and in my job, simply relocating I got $5 more on the hour and cheaper cost of living.

Beaufort-Which was the pricey-est off the beach town along the Crystal Coast has re-adjusted this year to be one of the area's sales hot spots.
Beaufort sold prices this last quarter are 30% less than 2006. $244K compared to $352K.
As a result of this re-adjustment sales are down only by 6% for the year in Beaufort as opposed to neighboring Morehead City and Newport where sales are down 28% and 37% respectively.

LOVED IT!!
Funky little coastal town full of characters! Historic district is where you'd want to be. Everyone is pretty friendly and there is a strong sense of community there. I lived in town for 4 yrs but have lived in the surrounding area for 12. We're about 10min away and still hang out there as we have lots of friends still there.

ScissorHappy above described Beaufort perfectly, I thought. I live here and there is a strong sense of community, characters a plenty, lots of creative spirits, and B'fort's a true microcosm of the world--being a seaport brings in adventurous folks from all over...never a dull moment...

We live 1 1/2 hrs. N. of Beaufort and absolutely love it. Last summer we rented a B&B that takes pets, (The Red Dog Inn) and brought our Samoyed. The 3 of us love every minute of our stay, we went to the local Dock House bar and sat outside watching the boats come in, she sat under the table eating drunkin shrimp. We can't wait to get back down there next month.
