Moved to Wilmington NC around Christmas. What's funny is about 50% of the residents in Wilmington are not from NC. Most from NY, CT, NJ and Ohio. The people, the weather. So far so good. Oh and the taxes...under a grand for 1700 sqft. If your thinking of moving to NC. Wilmington is growing big time. Looked at Cary NC last year and again last Summer. Reminded me of Stepford!

Welcome to NC! Glad you like Wilmington NC. Its always a good thing to like where you just moved too!

Is Stepford a town in NC? Is it a subdivision within Cary? I tried to MapQuest it and no hits. I tried to google it, 'stepford NC' and got a few Myspace hits and some things not worth even repeating. Then I saw, The Stepford Wives movie (1975) and thought hmmmm could that be it? So I drove around Cary and it sure looked like North Raleigh, Wake Forest, Apex, and most other towns in NC I have driven through. So that can't possibly be it.

I did see a really jacked up FORD pickup and it appeared that steps were used to get into it so maybe just maybe that is what you were referring to when you visited Cary. StepFord truck.

Oh well, again welcome to NC!!!!!!

Stepford is from a movie plot.

Don't think you'd want to consider living there and commuting to the Triangle.

If you're interested in living close to the coast, you should check out the forum for that area.
Coastal North Carolina - City-Data Forum: Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions
The people there can help you better than the residents of the Triangle.

Yes, Wilmington is on the coast ... approximately 2 hours away from the Triangle. I'm not sure why Vinster posted about it on the Triangle forums, though.
