I drove through Arlington Place about a year ago and the were only a couple of homes built at time.I'm sure it will be a nice subdivision,once developed.

Minnesott Beach is nice,I absolutely loved it.Check out Oriental too!

I for one am glad the building boom slowed down to a trickle because the remote feel is the reason I invested in the area. Seems to be a distinct division between the locals and the newcomers. If you like bugs, snakes and wildlife pamlico county is paradise.
Tell me about the bugs, snakes and wildlife. Do bugs/snakes get into the homes? And it is brutally humid in the summer, usually a cool breeze, or ?

Right on the water you have a breeze, Carolina Summers are humid overall, but it's much more bearable onthe coast than further inland. You have to protect against waterbugs getting in your home and mice getting into your in the winter. Snakes you'll see. Wildlife is not a real issue unless you have an irrational fear of it, but you'll see it. Everythiing from gators, to deer, to bears. Bugs are typically pretty bad, bud not as bad last year i noticed, probably due to the unusually cold winter. Screened porches are quite a plus. As well as citronella candles.

If a mouse can get in your house a snake can and will. They are usually following the rodents. The insects are the worst in the woods which is usually where I am. Between the chiggers, skeeters, and ticks it can get very intense in the summer and fall. The summers are very humid and hot due to all the water in the area that lays around. I saw a beautiful canebrake rattlesnake last summer on straight road that had to be 5 foot long right on the edge of the road getting ready to cross to the other side. Wanted to take pictures but had 20 minutes to catch the ferry at minnesott beach. I would tend to think that something that big would have a little trouble getting in through a mouse hole.
