Yeah, yeah, yeah. We know. It's really Shangra La out there. Hurricanes swing wide around the area as do Nor Easters. There are no drug and alcohol problems on Collington Rd. Oh yeah, the schools are the highest rated in the nation too.

Personally, I like the OBX but it doesnt really matter much <shrug>, but after all the helpful replies the OP never had the courtesy to update in almost 5 years (hopefully they're still not looking for a job and an apartment...)

Lowe's is puting in a store in, I think it is in KDH. 125 jobs will be created. But what I have heard is most of them will be part time.

Heh, Colington is nothing like it used to be. The whole outer banks is way tamer than it was even 10 years ago.

When I lived in Nags Head, we had no problem with crime. We lived there for 4 years and moved away in 2000. My wife(ex-wife now) was a teacher at Manteo high school. And I never heard any one talking about a drug problem. Not saying there were no illegal drugs being used, just that it was not common enough for people to talk about.

The biggest thing that happened while I lived there was a murder suiside in Manteo. Becasue of the size of Manteo, it made Manteo the murder capital of NC for the year.

Define "tons". Becasue as I said, I lived there and my Ex, was a teacher in the high school. And I know several people that live there now. I have heard of no drug or alcohol problem in the area or in the schools. Not saying there is "no" drugs, just not "Tons", nor a big problem.

As for the low paying jobs, that is every where. It just feels worse in a tourist area because things cost more there. Yes the pay should be higher because of that, but that's life.
