Although this thread IS posted under Coastal North Carolina - the thread topic is "What's the nearest place to perfect you can live in the U.S."


Mount Olive, NC had low crime when I lived there in the early 90's. Don't think there was even a murder, it was mostly shoplifting. However the school wasn't great and there was nothing to do: no movie theatre, no shopping except for a Belk's, no bowling alley, not even a Wal-Mart at that time. The weather was typical eastern NC weather. I would think Asheville and surrounding areas would be perfect.

I'm sure you know, Asheville is IN the mountains of WNC. At least a 9 hour drive across the state to the coast of NC. While we're at it, Asheville is getting their share of crime. The rest of WNC small towns are high on the safety scale. Petty crime, drug crime especially. Random theft and family crime is everywhere.

Neither Mount Olive (thats a joke, I assume) nor Asheville remotely meet the OP's criteria.

Oops, forgot about the "near the ocean" part. Never mind.

castaway365 - It's nice to hear about someone recently moving to Wilmington and loving it! We visited in the spring and have decided to retire in Wilmington; our house is currently on the market here in CT and we can't wait to make the move!!
