My family and I were just in the same situation a year ago. We ended up picking Elizabeth City close to the ocean and days drive to our family up north. I think w/ the Coast Guard in town this town does very well w/ outsiders. Something just didn't feel right w/ New Bern. We do go to VA for most of our big shopping. I have managed to make a number for friends in the first year I have been in town. This town is very small thought chances if you go out your are going to see someone you know though.
