New Bern area might be worth a look. We're not a college town, we're closer to the beaches and life is a little slower. Great place for a family to settle, traffic not a problem. As someone else said "straight shot up Hwy 70 most of it 70MPH.

It rarely snows in Kinston/New Bern. Maybe once a year and if so it's usually a dusting. Ice storms are usually more of a concern for us here

If you were working IN Kinston, I would also recommend the Ayden area too. New Bern is a long haul from Kinston if you have to do it daily with gas prices the way they are. There are some areas though within Kinston that are still nice but the town is just very small without a lot of chain retailers or restaurants that you may be accustomed to. I grew up about 15 minutes from Kinston and still live about an hour from there now so I'll be glad to answer any other questions you may have about the area.

We looked at Winterville and New Bern areas online and they both seem nice. We currently live in a large college town but do not have to be near a college or university unless I continue to work, but I am planning on staying at home with our toddler. We are looking for a place that is kid friendly with parks and a library. We don't mind a slower pace, safety is important, and my hubbie says we could live within a 30 minute or so drive to the Sanderson buildings in Kinston. He is used to driving about 200 miles a day with his current job so that doesn't bother him.

This information is very helpful. Its a little hard to enter a 30 mile area around kinston on realtor dot com and try to figure out where in the heck is a decent area.

We looked at Richlands, New Bern, and Winterville last night.

Any additional info is helpful, thanks again!

My suggestion is that you look at the area of Richlands NC in Onslow county....New schools, and IMO a nice area...It is about 20-25 miles from Kinston....So visit it and consider all your options...
