Hi to all!
I am looking for information on Nash County - Rocky Mount area, could anyone tell me what the cost of living is on a day to day basis? I am looking for information about rents, food, ultilities etc. What the crime rate is, and summers, are they humid. Also, local newspapers and TV Stations.
Thanks, I appreciate it.

Here is the official link if you have not seen it:

It's a nice area, I have spent some time there, but prefer the Wake Forest/Raleigh area.
Hope this is some help.
Jay

Yes summers are humid and hot. Crime is a fact of life wherever you go. I wouldn't say Rocky Mount is over run with thugs but there are bad areas in any city, even a relatively small one like Rocky Mt. There are alot of poor folks in the downtown area and they suffer with drug sales, etc.

Rocky Mount has traditionally had a large black population. Not a judgement call.

Cost of living would be less than most other areas. Good jobs might require some driving...Raleigh is about 45 minutes West.

I have lived within 15 miles of Rocky Mt. for the better part of 20 years. People are basically very good. It's North Carolina and we are not a rich state, esp. the East Central area where I live. This area is rapidly evolving from a primarily agricultural driven economy. Tobacco cultivation was king for 100+ years. I'm sure you would feel at home here if you keep your expectations reasonable. We like people who work and look out for their neighbors.

There is always an unfavorable part of every city that you would not choose to live in. You just have to go and see the area first hand.

We are looking to move just the other side of Nashville on hwy 58. Can you tell me what that area is like? We found a wonderful manufactured home, reasonably priced on 2 acres but if the area is bad it doesn't matter how good of a deal it is. Any information you could provide would be much appreciated.
