I've never been here but it seemed like a good choice:

I wanted to set it in a place that's Southern, but not as stereotypically so as... say, Alabama, South Carolina, or Tennessee. I wanted it to be near a city, but not one as big as Charlotte or as liberal as some of the other cities in NC. And I was hoping to find a place with a lot of hills, forests, and suburbs.

I'd use my own hometown (Tampa) but it's too big, completely hill-free, too touristy, and too much of a party town.

I'm actually not planning to directly say where the story's set because I don't want to have to rigidly stick to geographic boundaries or have the locals tell me how wrong I got it - but I'll be using a few real street names, school names (really generic ones, like Page, Jefferson, or Andrews) and I'm trying to find as many photos from the area as I can to draw backgrounds from.

Can anyone who's at least been there tell me some things I'll need to know about it?

Also, letting me know anywhere I can find street-level photos (besides here or Google) would be good.

(The comic is a slice-of-life story about a high schooler, for the record.)

A story with words and pictures.

In this case, a webcomic.

Well let's see. What will this high schooler be doing? Know more about the main subject will help match him to an area.
