    North Carolina where should I buy a house?

    Guys wife has been putting this idea in my head to move to NC.

    I really don't care where I live as computers and cars will be where ever we move.

    My question is where?

    I was born and raised in Florida so the beach isn't really a must have but would be nice to take a short drive to get to one, I want to be in a medium size town not to big not to small, a happy place with good schools for my kids to grow up in.

    and NSX owners local.

    Any Ideas so I can start looking

    Help.... LOL

    My in-laws live in Newport which is pretty close to Morehead City along the coast and we visit them every year. I was also in the Army in Ft Bragg back in the 80's and became pretty fond of North Carolina. So the state pretty much has three sections; the beach area along the coast, the middle (where Bragg is and also Raleigh) and the mountains. I'm from New York so I kinda like the mountains of NC because it reminds me of New York. It's really pretty but you're quite a ride away from the beach. The cool thing about NC is that you still get the seasons although winter is pretty short. Not sure about the car scene but I'm sure some folks here could give you some input. I was thinking about retirement there at some point.

    I think you should move to Madison (Mayberry).
    I'm a Florida native myself (Jacksonville, Gainesville, now Pensacola).
