Our only visit to New Bern was about 5 years ago. Sounds like a lot has changed since then. We're planning another visit next month. You mention that Taberna is attracting families. Our understanding was that Taberna is an age-restricted community. Are we incorrect on this?

Have you looked in the Triad area- Winston-Salem/Greensboro/High Point area? I moved here from NH and absolutely love it here. I have an 8 year old stepson and his mother took him from private school to public school (third grade) and he made the transition well (They built a huge house and didn't want the expense anymore) We were concerned about the transition but I have been very impressed with the public school systems in this area. I have been to Charlotte on several occasions and just find it to be kind of uppity (my opinion only) I work in Winston-Salem and it is the nicest place. I have to say that I have met more people that aren't from here, than are!!! For folks that want to leave the cold of the north but not go to the heat of the deep south this is a wonderful alternative. You get the distinct seasons but not the bitterness that goes with the north, and because of the mountain influence (1 hr to the Blue Ridge) you don't get the extreme heat. There are a nice mix of nationalities here and with all of the major colleges as well as some of the greatest teaching hospitals here (Wake Forest- Duke) there is a nice blend of opportunities as well.

There are 2 schools in CHarlotte for children with ADHD that you may want to consider...Fletcher School and Dore Academy.

We were in New bern in May----and bought a lot in Fairfield Harbour. We're hoping to retire there next year. The changes there are very exciting, as well as the downtown staying as it is---we had lunch there, what a good feeling place. The Neuse has it's water quality issues, but it appears that there is good fishing, and it is edible. Long Island Sound fish are not recommended to be eaten by small children or pregnant women, and if you do eat the fish, keep it to once or less a week for most species. I've never let my children swim there---only in a pool, or in NC (yes, 700 miles each way every summer) I'd love to see pics of New Bern, since we didn't get to see "everything" when we were there.
