Any opinions on the Oriental area? Was just told of this area, nice homes, within budget...and big enough with some land to them. Is this mostly a retirement area? Things to do for teens? High school thoughts? Seems like a safe place from what I have researched.

Oriental has a population of 900. Its tiny. There are more octogenarians than teenagers. The high school is 10 miles away, in another town.

More boats than people. A bit isolated.

Lots of boaters in Oriental. Nice small coastal town. Not many teenagers.

Pamlico Co just got a Food Lion and small Wal-Mart among a few other things...these are 10-15 miles from Oriental...for perspective. About a 40 minute drive to New Bern for most stuff.

Check out Wilmington. Close to the beach and more of a regular town with a variety of ages and shopping etc...
