I see tons of posts from people who are in or who will be in Wake County such as Raleigh or Cary. But I don't see too many people over in Carrboro/Chapel Hill. Any shout outs from over there, particularly if you're a family with young children?

we have a four month old daughter...

Laura,

How did you make out with that Moms group last week? Hope all that went well.

Hey Debby - the mom's group was great and ended up meeting some other moms as well.

also looks like I got a freelance job doing makeup for a two day photo shoot next weekend!

I imagine that you'll find more young families in the part of Chapel Hill in Chatham and Durham counties than in Orange county since the property values in that area are generally lower.

And how do those 2 things correlate exactly? Lower property values with more young families?

There are plenty of young families in Chapel Hill to the point that Chapel Hill/Carrboro schools has just built its 3rd High School and is in the planning stages for the 10th elementary school due to overcrowding in the schools now....

Age and income correlate very closely.

Not as closely as income and education and Chapel Hill boasts one of the highest percentages of college and graduate educated individuals in the area.

It also depends on the definition of a "young family".....

There are just as many families with young children in Chapel Hill as any of the surrounding areas.....some of the parents may be older having put off children while establishing careers, but I don't even know if that is different from the surrounding areas.

The fact that more "young families" choose to live in Chapel Hill precisely BECAUSE of the school system would also prove your assumption false.
