We need a lot more information than what you are supplying. Where do you live now? What would you be studying? Why are you looking, specifically, for a "small coastal town in NC"?

If you get involved with an actual program sponsored thru your school THEY will tell you the names of places where host families are willing to take a foreign student in.

Find out what those options are, then come back and tell us the different location choices an accredited program is giving you, THEN we can tell you the best of all those locations.

And where do you think you'll live while you do this??

What you seem to be proposing is not the way this is done. You can't just come here as a minor from another country and live here alone.

Contact the county school system in Wilmington, NC: http://www.nhcs.k12.nc.us/ Maybe they have an exchange program or can tell you where to find out more information.

If you do arrange something, you should think about going to Wilmington. It's not what I'd consider a small town, but you said you want to be around other teenagers, cafes, etc. I hope you are doing this with your parent's or family's permission. Maybe there are special circumstances. I would encourage you to try living overseas, if you can get the proper paperwork, and if you have a safe living situation.

Good luck, and don't hesitate to ask more questions. If you can give us a little more info on what you're doing, it would let us do a better job of helping you.

Not to mention she'd need a greencard/visa/passport and probably a sponsor.

Find out where their host families are first. The United States is a very diverse place; conditions vary within states. North Carolina has small towns, beautiful mountains, scenic countryside - and beautiful beaches and vibrant large cities like Charlotte. And that's just one state of fifty, each with its own history, charm and unique opportunities.

It really depends on what you are interested in, and what your program offers.

I would talk to students who went to some of the places you are interested in. Research them on your own, and work with your program to find the place that is right for you.
