We listed our lovely little cabin in the pines today and now the anxiety has begun. I've been trying to research homes and areas via the internet. This forum has been a great resource. Unfortunately, there's nothing about the area we are thinking of moving into. It is a suburb of Nashville on HWY 58 on High Point Rd. I've done as much homework as possible, even called the Nashville PD, but still feel uneasy about the move. Since we are on the west coast I can't exactly hop in my car and drive over to check this area out. Can anybody help me out here?

If you're asking about Nashville, NC crime, the two sources I checked say it's below average to average compared to the United States average.

Thanks for the info mm34b. My mind is a little more at ease. Know anything about the community? I know it's on the outskirts. Do you think a laid back California girl will fit in?

Hello. Just wondering your reason for moving from CA to NC. And why the Nashville area?

Mountain Sprite,

I'm going to be in that area the next few days. Is there something specific you want to know?

(I don't live there...I'm going to do some research. But maybe I can find out something for you.)

Cheers,
Diana

Default Mountain Sprite.....

We are also moving to that area (Rocky Mount, Nashville, Red Oak) from Texas & I am the type that likes to know every little thing I can find out about an area before I get there, so I can empathize with you! I am leaving for a visit to the area next weekend - so I will check back in with what I find. You're right, there hasn't been a lot posted about this area, so any NC residents reading this, please tell what you know about the area.
Thanks!

Mountain Sprite, I got your PM and I wasn't ignoring you. I was trying to figure out what to tell you about the area and then I learned that someone was coming up to the area and that I might go and meet her there. I would be in a better position to answer your questions after I go to Nash County. I live about 45 miles from the area and I not that familiar with it. My sister recently moved there but I haven't seen the house yet. But perhaps later this week I can tell you more about the area. Now if it is weather and general things about the climate, I could tell you about that as I doubt the weather is that much different from here to there.

Default Rocky Mount

Rocky Mount isn't a great area in my opinion, but that's just me. I posted something about it last week - you can click under my name to read my posts.

Some people may enjoy it, but I've been there a few times and wouldn't want to live there. Others could say the same about where I live - everybody is different.
