Thanks so much for the input! Schools aren't important to me as it would be a small, second home. I will check out the areas you mentioned and definitely do my research on weather damage. Hopefully, I can have the same luck as your brother-in-law!

New Bern would be the largest of these towns if that is a factor. And it is also the furtherest from the actual coast. Although there is an inlet or something that runs through New Bern so you would see water there. Great little historical town. It is in Craven County and some 45 miles maybe from the actual coast and Morehead City.

I've read a lot of interest in New Bern from this forum. I love historic towns. It's going to be fun exploring next month!

Be sure and check out Tryon Palace which was the governor's mansion when New Bern was the capital of North Carolina. Raleigh is the capital now but New Bern has a pretty nice historic district.

chandler - haha I have to tell you that's a pretty ridiculous looking photograph on your website. The photoshopped one where someone holding a huge grouper (I think) superimposed against a beachfront. lol, I don't think you're fooling anybody.

I can understand you're trying to make money, but don't pretend like the Outer Banks and Charlotte are in the same league with hurricanes. When Hugo hit Charlotte it was what, a Cat1?

Default Outer Banks

Hey, if you wanna move to Dare County - you go for it!!! Yea, the taxes are high and you do have to deal with coastal issues. But you just weigh out the pros against the cons. I've wanted to live there forever and will someday if I can come up with the funds to do so! Wouldn't even consider ocean front - #1 is the cost and #2 is of course weather issues. But living soundside or between the highways - of course I'd do it!
There's earthquakes in California, but folks live there and love it. The Outer Bankers figure it's worth the occasional inconvenience and even danger to live on one of the most beautiful islands on the planet!
