Hello,
My husband and I have decided to move south and have chosen Wilmington NC... We currently live in Maryland and have lived here our entire life. MD is very expensive, the electric bill has tripled, taxes have been raised and housing is outrageous. Our children our 13 and 7 and are estatic about the warm weather and the beaches. My 13year old would fit in better in a more relaxed welcoming atmosphere, here where we live it is all about "keeping up with the jones' and we are financially struggling.

I have Crohn's Disease so my fear is the medical care in NC. Here in MD, in Baltimore there is the BEST care for my illness.

I want a nice kid friendly neighborhood for my children and good schools. I am currently in college pursuing a teaching degree. I have an AA in Chemical Dependency but will not be working for a few years. My husband has been in sales and we are concerned about him finding work, as he was just laid off here in MD due to the company downsizing, the economy/ recession at work.

We do not know where to start. What neighborhoods to check out? Any Suggestions?

Again, Importance to us is:
Children in the neighborhood
High School District
Access to College for me
Jobs for my husband
Medical Care
Less than an hour from the beach

Thank you for your thoughts!

price range of homes /neighborhoods you might be
looking for?

you should also secure a job before moving here.

other than that I am sure you will find Wilmington wonderful
however it is not jsut that easy to move and
leave family and friends to start over.
it can be a lonely ,confusing experience.
that said , having kids will get you involved in the community
quickly and then you will meet new friends.

I'd be especially interested in responses regarding medical care; are many doctors accepting new patients (especially Medicare patients). Where we live now there is a critical doctor shortage (family care, cardiologists, urologists, dermatologists)
