I'm from Clearwater and there are alot of mosquitoes in the summer. There are also roaches, palmetto bugs, spiders, grasshoppers, and many more. But the beaches are georgeous! Bugs shouldn't be anyone's determining factor about where to move. That's what exterminators and bug spray are for!

They are mutant Japanese beetles! Bacillus thurun%$#@**&^ or something like that kills the grubs (imagine maggots on steroids). Carpenter bees are also a joy - look like bees on steroids - bores a perfect 1/4 in hole in wood siding. Sevin dust in the hole takes care of that.

Default Wilmington NC

You should try Wilmington NC...temps in the winter are usually 10 to 15 degrees warmer than Raleigh during the winter. Plenty of palms and beach as well as lots of things to do. Big city feel somewhat without the big city. Check it out, I did I moved from Elkins WV to Wilmington two years ago.

Then Raleigh..... totally empty downtown. So small, nothing really around. Driving is not THAT bad, as people always say, but it wouldn't hurt to post a few more street signs and such.

Durham was even worse - absolutely nothing to see or do. I left as quickly as I could.

New Bern was cute, but quite small. It's a nice historic place to visit, but not to stay.

There, you have it now from me, my sincere thoughts.

I thought about relocating to NC, but after a visit, Charlotte would be the only option. However, I'm continuing my research, more south, as I really like to live aroud palms, which you cannot find even on coast of NC.

Thanks!
EXCELLENT summay. Charlotte is the true GEM of NC for larger cities!

Asheville & Wilmington are very nice too.

If it's palm trees and daily activities you want, then i would suggest the coastal cities, or the outer banks. Like, Cape Hatteras, Kittie Hawk, Nags Head, or Avon. Plenty of palm trees, and plenty of stuff to do.

New Bern is half an hour from the coast. Once you get to Morehead City and Atlantic Beach there are Palmetto Palms everywhere and going South to Wilmington. There are also some isolated Pindo, and California Palms along with a few date palms. Also, when I lived in Morehead City I had banana plants that would fruit every Fall.
