We are planning a visit to the Carolina's, visiting both North and South Carolina. We have even discussed temporarily living in North Carolina to experience the Coastal areas.
Can anyone recommend the best cities to live near the coastal areas. Are all areas along the Coast subjected to hurricanes?
Since we have never been to The Carolinas we are not familiar with the areas for worst and best weather conditions.
We expect to start our travels by Christmas or sometime in December.
I understand that central to northern areas experience seasonal cold weather, such as snow and ice.
Also Southport and Carolina Beach were recommended as very nice areas, and not subjected to bad weather (i.e. no snow, no ice and no hurricanes).
Would like to stay somewhat near the coast if possible.
Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

I like Southport, and nearby Oak Island, a lot! Coming in December you will not have any worries of hurricanes. The seaon for them starts in May, but our coast usually has no hurricane activity until August and September. The further south you are the less concern there is for ice and severe temps, so the southern end of NC is a good choice. Good luck!
