I am currently in Tn but I really would love to move close to Carolina Beach or Wrightsville Beach.. can anyone tell me the best areas for small children, best schools, crime rates? My husband may start driving since he has his CDL license but I'm going to try and go back to school.. we have a five year old and I want someplace safe for him, that's number one! We visited Wilmington last week and went to both beaches I mentioned, ate at Hell's Kitchen, and walked downtown Wilmington and I simply fell in love!! Everything was great. The people were friendly and the water just hit home for me that that is where I need to be! I guess we would want a rental place first to get started, then look into buying later, so someone help me out? Thanks!

I live in the Ogden area behind Ogden Park. There several new neighborhoods, the schools in the area are newer and the area is safe. We are minutes from Mayfaire and Wrightsville Beach and about 10-15 from downtown. While I am a native, I have always lived on the north side of town so can't fairly speak about the south side, Monkey Junction or the Masonboro area. People that live in those areas seem to love it though.

Is there anywhere that you can get a house and a little land? Either on the coast or the intracoastal waterway??
