I've been living here for over 2 years. My husband is stationed here. So, I can tell you a little about this place. Some people like it, some don't. I LOVE it here! I think if you're young and single, you might find this town a little boring. There's really not much to do or see. But if you're married and have kids, this is a great place to bring up a family. I love it here cos' it's a military town and very diverse. People are really nice, friendly and polite. You get addressed "Sir" and "Ma'am" a lot around here. There are lots of restaurants here...especially fast food and steak houses. Shopping is not that great but it works. There is a nice, big town about an hour away called Wilmington and a lot of people go there to shop, eat, sight-see, etc. Cost of living is not bad here. Prices are quite decent. What else you wanna know?

There are a few things to see and do here. Not much but definitely there are things to keep you busy. You can go to the beach during the summer months. There is one on base and also a few nearby. Nearby towns like Wilmington, Swanboro, etc are also nice to do day trips. There is a mall here, cinema, small shops, lots of thrift stores, etc. There's always something going on on base. So, if you're planning on staying on base, you'll always find something to do. I don't live on base but I always find something to do in the area or just hang out with friends. When will you be arriving? Do you have any children? Send me a private message if you like and I can get you more details and any information you might require.
