Money is not too much of a problem with regards to rent or anything like that. Also, I was wondering how it would be for a younger couple to live there (ie. night life, meeting other people in their mid 20's, shopping, general stuff to do). Finally, my girlfriend will be looking for a job as a clinical social worker in a hospital. Any recommendations with regards to hospitals that would provide a good working environment? Any help is appreciated!
Can't help you on the apartments, I will say don't live in Southgate, and don't live in Spring Lake behind Carlie's IGA, don't live anywhere on Murchison Rd and don't live in Bonnie Doone, all four of those areas are infested with scum. Rentals tend to get snatched up rather quick due to all of the Army being here. There's a ton of young grunts here so you'll meet alot of Army youngins. Yes there are lots of bars here, some strip clubs, hookers that roam up and down Bragg all hours of the night. We have like 4 Super Wal Marts here, we also have a **** load of restaurants, we also have a drag strip and a water park in a swamp called Fantasy Lake. Be prepared for alot of discourteous people here and it gets miserably hot and muggy in the summer. But the winters are mild.
