Crime rate seems pretty high in Wilmington. Am I mistaken?

If not, can anyone give me an idea on some nearby cities that may have less crime?

Or can you just give me an idea, I've never been to Wilmington but was looking at some jobs up there. It looked nice because of the coast (I'm a FL girl) but is this just a baaad area/??

Thanks

I too would be interested in any comments that any of you might have on this topic. Leaving for Wilmington in 19 days. Will be staying in Castle Hayne til we decide on an area to buy in. Thanks Dugan

Been there once to look at UNCW for college. I lived in Jacksonville, FL before NC. One big difference. NC beaches are CLEAN. Wilmington seemed nice..and flat! (I live in the mountains). From what I know of the town is that there is a nice college scene, music is big, and the film industry out there is booming. i'm sure the crime statistics are from minor things like drunken college students taking a "relief moment" on a public sidewalk.

Short answer. North to the airport, south to Shipyard Blvd, east of 3rd St.,
west of 17th St. . In my opinion this is the stay away from area.

Default wilm

like the above post said, stay away from the "pockets" of run down areas. (like most cities have) We never had any crime problems ... always felt safe. I grew up in Wilm. and my family is still there. (28409 zip) We would LOVE to move back to NC as soon as my husband can find a job!! So many people want to move to the area ... lucky you if you have a job!!!!

Wilmington is a great place to live. After living in MA, Asheville, Greenville, and 2 towns near Orlando ... Wilmington is still my fav. Good luck!
