I'm looking at a school in Raleigh. So I like to move somewhere in between there and the coast ( I need to be able to reach a beach in 1-2 hours). I live in Pa and the jersey shore is only a little over an hour away. Any suggestions on towns, I would like a few acres, and I have kids so schools are important. Thanks for any help you can give.

Raleigh-2 1/2 to 3 hours away from the beach.
Goldsboro-2 hours away from the beach
Kinston-1 hour and 15 minutes away from the beach
New Bern-45 minutes away from the beach
Morehead City-2 minutes away from the ocean beach

All of the above cities are located on HWY. 70

There is numerous colleges in the coastal plain if you need to be closer than Raleigh

With kids stay away from Kinston and Goldsboro (gangs) Washington not good either. Springhope and Nashville are okay. How old are kids, as some areas have good elem.and terrible high schools or vice versa.

Try Clayton near the intersection of highways 40 and 42. You should be able to find a house with some land and the schools are decent. You could make it to Wilmington in an hour 45 minutes and Raleigh in 30-40 minutes.
