Review of Kinston, North Carolina

A Great Town of New Opportunity 2014
Star Rating - 1/29/2014
I'm moving my business and family with 2 young children to Kinston in March from Chapel Hill/Durham. Kinston is really nice with a great new restaurants, close proximity to the ocean, and the best private school in the eastern part of the state. Parents drive their children from New Bern, Greenville, and Jacksonville every morning to attend the school. We can send our two children for the same price as one in Durham. Housing is 60% the cost of Durham, with nice homes within biking distance to the country club. Commercial buildings are a wonderful opportunity as well. I am buying 2 buildings total of 6,000 feet for about what you spend on a basic beach condo. Awesome. Being 30 minutes from the ECU college town is a perk for incoming lectures, football games, and all other things college towns have to offer. We feel it's a nice small town in which to raise our children. In some ways Kinston reminds me of Durham 5 years ago, just when the artesian businesses began to move into downtown. Kinston has a Good Vibe
