What about Nashville, NC? It's about 45 minutes east of Raleigh, so not bad distance to really good shopping and restaurants. Red Oak and Nashville are the best elementary schools in the district (others aren't great!). Nashville is a beautiful older town....although they just got the contract for WalMart (at least its further away from downtown!). Really charming town!

I have lived in Greenville for 3 years and I LOVE IT! I have lived in Eastern North Carolina my whole life. There are several towns outside of Greenville that you can hang your hat and call home. Griffton and Ayden are about 15 minutes away from Greenville (home of East Caolina University....the Pirates). East Carolina serves as a major Medical hub for Eastern North Carolina. Kinston is about 15 minutes away and serves as a major industrial area with a Global Transport Park near by. Greenville is a place where you can enjoy activites year round with several beaches close by. The Contentnea Creek, you can enjoy fishing, kayaking, and collecting Native American Treasures. This peaceful area has a lot to offer if you want to escape the hustle bustle of city life to the easy-going pace you can experience the best that Eastern North Carolina has to offer!
Feel free to email if you have any questions about this area. I think that it would be a great place to raise your family.
Ann

Mebane will be an ideal location. It's small and near Greensboro, Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh.

Hey, Newlywed!

I used to live in Saxapahaw and we seemed to like it. It was teeny-tiny, most of it orbiting a 'general store'/gas station and a couple churches (typical, really, for NC). The people were all really nice, but the houses were kind of run down - at least the ones I stayed in. I'm sure there's some really nice stuff out there and I know they just built a new community right as we were leaving.

It's close to Chapel Hill/Carborro, too (about twenty-thirty minutes). And, in the other direction, it's close to Burlington, which has a pretty nice Wal-Mart and a small mall and strip of national stores.
