We are moving to the leland/wilmington area: We have two little girls one in elementary school. Is leland a good family town?

leland isn't really a town. it's growing with new strip malls and housing developments. you will most likely be crossing the bridge into wilmington to do anything fun with your kids.

Thanks. Is leland a good place to live with kids? Safe? My realtor says it's a great area and close enough to shopping and activities.

it's not bad. my ex lives there with her daughter. the taxes are low. I just feel that you will be spending a lot of time in wilmington. wilmington has the parks, movie theaters, and stuff like that. there are some new strip malls going up out there.

I have 2 kids ages 7 and 4 and we live in Leland. I prefer this area over Wilmington because I am close enough to Wilmington and its activities, but when I come home I feel like I am in a more quiet, rural place. I prefer the Brunswick County beaches over New Hanover, such as Caswell Beach. It just seems like a slower pace, which I prefer. The schools here are not the greatest, but I am putting my faith into them improving over the next couple of years. I see changes in the works and that is encouraging. As far as safety goes, I haven't had any problems. Most of the thugs and crime are in the downtown area of Wilmington and you are far enough away from that out here.
