The Benefits of Living in North Carolina
Quality Higher Education
With a huge emphasis placed on education, North Carolina hosts some of the nation’s top colleges and universities. Duke University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest University are among some of the top quality schools found here. Even in smaller towns like Stokesdale, you’ll find highly rated public and private schools for younger ages with a focus on STEM programs that prepare young students for higher education. Stokesdale was rated #15 among the best public schools in the suburbs of North Carolina.
If you’re sick of the extreme weather found up north, you’ll love living in North Carolina. It’s the perfect blend of seasons, with mild winters and warm summers. The chances of snow are slim, so there’s no need to worry about the blast of blizzards ruining your day. Even better, you’ll still be able to see the sights of the seasons changing, like the colorful leaves in fall and the gorgeous blooming flowers in spring.
Cost of Living
When compared to the national average, North Carolina has a low cost of living overall, including the housing market. A majority of its residents are homeowners and reap the benefits of a lower than average property tax compared to the rest of the US. A great place to consider is Stokesdale, because the median household income is one of the highest in the state as well as in the US, allowing more spending on other things like groceries and utilities (which are also lower than national average costs).
Rich History & Culture
As one of the original 13 colonies, North Carolina has a wealth of history. It’s home to a multitude of museums, festivals, and music venues. The first public state museum was the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. It’s also the birthplace of notable food and beverage favorites like Krispy Kreme, Pepsi-cola, and Bojangles.
Views and Outdoor Adventures
There is no shortage of breathtaking, tranquil views to behold, from the Blue Ridge Mountains in the west to the beaches in the east, and the forests and lakes in between. North Carolina is surrounded by natural beauty, which leads to a plethora of exciting outdoor adventures. Fishing, boating, biking, hiking, horseback riding, and many other activities are available throughout this beautiful state.
