My wife and I are contemplating a move to Wilmington. We have a 2 year-old daughter. An important characteristic for a home/neighborhood to us is that it be within biking or walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. and that it have an active community. A realtor suggested neighborhoods around Mayfaire.

Can anyone suggest a neighborhood within walking or biking distance that meets these criteria? We are looking in the range of $250K, which I think prices us out of the neighborhood actually associated with the Mayfaire development. Any thoughts or comments on living in this area would be appreciated.

There is a neighborhood right behind Mayfaire and one of the roads actually connects into the Mayfaire development. I am not sure of the cost of the homes...they are more modest and there is quite a variety of homes, so you might have more luck there. I haven't had enough caffeine this a.m. to be able to think of that road that connects, but you could probably find it through google maps. There is a new development named Autumn Hall tht will also meet some of your criteria, but not sure how far along it is and what the price points are. They also have a website you could look for to get info. Sadly, pedestrian friendly neighborhoods such as you describe are rare here...you can walk around your neighborhoods, but not to restaurants, shops, and things. There are lots of active communities however. I imagine you have a job that you can do from here? The job market is kind of tough in this area.
