Well, there are actually no towns north of Burlington in Alamance County, it's mostly countryside. You have Yanceyville close to the Virginia border about 30 minutes from Burlington, but that town is truly "out there."

Burlington IS a town. So is Graham. I love Graham. I have friends who live and work there.

But if you want land, you won't be in a town. You'll be near one.

The south is humid in summer. It just is. It won't kill ya.

The interview went well! Now the waiting game....background, reference, credit checks. Hubby liked the area especially Elon and Whitsett. Did not get enough time to check out Graham fully. He said everyone was super friendly!

Anywhere in Alamance should have what you're looking for. I'd say south of Burlington is where I'd want to be personally, but I like Chapel Hill and Carrboro more than Greensboro. My kid goes to school in Alamance Co so I have friends all over out there, Graham, Burlington, Mebane, Snow Camp, Eli Whitney, Saxapahaw, Haw River, etc. Elon is pretty cute. Mebane has a cute downtown, too. Plenty of land all over Alamance.

He got the job! So, we drove down for the weekend. I liked it. Especially the sun and rolling hills. We drove all around...Graham, Mebane, W. Burlington, Elon, Whitsett. I liked Graham the best between 87 and 49. Hubby is accepting position today. Start date is March 30. Crazy time! No I need to stop researching the snakes and spiders. Eekk!

We live in a townhouse out in the country but there are several subdivisions for larger homes nearby. The Graham Public Library is very well stocked for a small town and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
We were just up in Graham Elon and Southern Burlington this past Saturday riding areas . Found 1 level townhomes we loved in Gibsonville. My husband is from the area and some family there and rest in Cary so we are trying to decide .
