Well, Richlands is a bit further than 30 minutes to the beach. I get 34 miles and 39 minutes to North Topsail Beach, and that's mostly because you have to go around Camp Lejeune. It is a bit further to Emerald Isle.

Richlands has a nice, small downtown with a few shops, fast food restaurants, schools and county buildings. It is surrounded by farmland. You can easily get a house with an acre or two of land. Some of your neighbors will be military retirees.

However, you don't really have to go that far away from the coast to get rural surroundings. Parts of Jacksonville, Piney Green and Hubert are also rural. (You might watch out for the location of hog farms and cattle feed lots as the tend to smell.) Be aware that Camp Lejeune tends to make a lot of noise with artillery and helicopter flights, and it may affect Richlands also. You should also be aware the Camp Lejeune owns a lot of the waterfront, and you cannot drive through the base on Highway 172.
