I was just wondering if you could live in any town in North Carolina where would it be? If there was nothing holding you back, such as money, jobs, cost of living, where would you go? Just trying to take a poll. Thank you.

Well, I guess I would stay where I am, in Greene County in Snow Hill, NC. But that is just me. Most people don't land here on purpose. They are usually born into the area as I was along with the 13 generations of my family or they marry someone with ties to the area. But it isn't bad. We are bordered by four counties that as less than 1/2 hour drive to one or the other that has the other things that you would need as a hospital, Walmart, theater, bowling alley and the like. We have more historical references than material items. We do have the St. Barnabas Church that is listed on the historical society list of historical sites. And we have several houses that are of historical importance. But that is me. Most people would die of being bored than anything else. Me, I have more than enough to amuse me. All I have to do is stay in the house and it comes to me.

Forgive me for not answering this question but I would never want to contribute to changing the dynamics of the most wonderful town in NC by naming it. That is a secret that I will never tell on a forum such as this where everyone is trying to decide just which town to move to.

Geez, people! Since "outsiders" don't seem to be welcome in your perfect towns, I wouldn't want to move there anyway. So please, keep your secret and the rest of us will find a town a little more welcoming to us darned outsiders.

Easy to spot. The ones with very slow growth. If posting on this forum is any indication, the "outsiders" are mostly only interested in the Raleigh and Charlotte Metro areas anyway.

lol I love how people come to NC and think there is actually a Maybury. Nope, fake town. I believe it is based off of Mount Airy, NC. Northwest of Winston-Salem and close to the Virginia border.
