I'm currently living and working in Middlesex Cty. NJ. Married for 3 months and already the wife is trying to lure me down south (she's originally from ATL). Some opportunities have come up where that move might be bumped sooner than later. However, being Jersey born and bred I'm not too familiar with living down south.
For a Jersey boy, where down south could I settle and feel comfortable. I'm pretty religious so the bible belt doesn't scare me in that way. I'd like to live near a college or university but probablay not a huge state university. I would like to be near water, preferably the ocean. Also, having a walkable down town either to live in or be nearby is important to me, Wal Mart is important to her.
So far we've found Wilmington, NC and Charleston, SC as possible areas to move. If you have any info on these areas good or bad, and please be more fact based than opinions at this point. I would appreciate it, or are there areas we've missed. Also, has anyone ever visited Harve de Grace, MD? I always pass it on my way down 95 but never pulled off, it's at the mouth of the Chessapeak and might warrant a look too.
