Hello..... I am considering applying for a new job in Havelock. I have never been to the area. I used to live in Charleston, SC and LOVED it but it is quite expensive to live near the water. I dont want to live in Havelock according to what I read but I am interested in hearing from people who live in the surounding towns on ideas for affordable home rentals ($900-$1200 per month) near the water and if this is a decent area for a 30 year old single guy with 2 dogs.

Thanks

You'll get better responses in the coastal forum. For starters, you can research communities outside of Havelock that run along the creeks and rivers, like Brice's Creek, Neuse Harbor, Tucker;s Creek, Stately Pines, and Carolina Pines. As wellas communities going down nC 101, like Cherry Branch, down to the intracoastal waterway on the backside of Beaufort. In addition to Newport (more expensive than Havelock overall, but cheaper than the rest of Carteret County, furthest from water, nearest to Havelock), Morehead City, and Beaufort. What have you heard negative about Havelock, might I ask?

I have heard that inside the city of Havelock is just not much to look at. Thats pretty much what I was going on

Looks like someone moved the forum for you. Havelock is a small town, there's nothing wrong with it, though. Nothing bad you can say about it beyond that. The area at large, to include carteret county, is not the best for a 30 yr old single guy in general, but it depends on what your interests are. It's a great place for families though. Alot of community activities/involvement and some of top schools in the area (in the nation for that matter).
