I'm not exactly familiar with the geography of North Carolina. But I was wondering, are there any larger (population 50,000 or larger) cities on the coast? Are there any cities with a population of over 100,000 on the coast?

Wilmington is about as close as you are going to get it population just reached 100k in estimations. Everywhere else is considerably smaller.

Greenville will be at the 80,000 mark in a year or two. It's already close to 100,000 if you include Winterville. The two places touch one another in spots.

Jacksonville NC is a military town that is GROWING. It's about 30 minutes from Swansboro, Emerald Isle beach area...has lots of restaurants, stores etc. Affordable housing. 2006 est pop 60,000k +
New Bern NC river town quite, laid back 50 minutes from beaches, depending on how you count it( sounds like politics) probably closer to 35,000 if you add close surrounding developments like River Bend, Fairfield, and Trentwoods etc.
