Cassie, I wish you well in Fayetteville. I grew up there and have several friends who still live there and like it still. I think there are some good folks there. If you've got a job lined up, that's more than half the battle. A place is what you make of it.

Tage, if you don't have a job lined up in Fayetteville and aren't moving to be around friends or family I'm not sure I would recommend it. The crime rate is not good. There are some nice places, but it's not my choice of NC towns. You might look in the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill), Charlotte and suburbs, or the Triad (Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point).

I have to second poppydog here. These are the places that are seeing job growth.

Um, are you aware that NC is on the East Coast??

^ maybe she meant literally the coast

I would pick a larger metro and choose a small town like 30 minutes out (if you wanted to be in a small town).

I'd look into the suburbs of Raleigh. You asked for peace and affordability. Consider the towns of Clayton, Fuquay-Varina, Wake Forest, Rolesville, etc.

I am not a fan of Fayetteville. Hubby commutes there several days a week. I would not recommend moving there!

Maybe, but she could have just said "the coast" in that case. For some reason, a lot of folks use the term "the East Coast" to mean "The Northeast", as if the Southeast were not every bit as "east coast" (NC and FL have the most coastline on the Atlantic ocean of any states). I can't speak for what she meant, but several have used that terminology on these boards (and in real life) before, seeming to forget that NC is also "The East Coast".

You need to be looking for jobs first. There's an article in today's Fayetteville Observer (daily newspaper) about how Fayetteville's unemployment rate is higher than the state rate right now.
