On a crazy whim, we decided to drive (12 hours!) to Wilmington, NC to check it out!!
We left at 2 am with a couple bags and baby in tow. Surprisingly it went really smooth, it was just a looooong drive. Thank you to the creators of Diego, my little one was in a trance as long as he was on the tv. I can tell you that four days later, I can’t get that theme song out of my head!
We ended up in Wilmington at 3pm and went straight to the realtors office. Then we drove around in his car for an hour on a quick tour of Wrightsville beach and a few neighborhoods. We checked into our hotel and grabbed a bite to eat and then crashed!
The next morning we drove into downtown and took in the sights. If you’ve ever watched One Tree Hill, you’ll recognize everywhere we were. The River Walk along Cape Fear River Basin, Battleship Carolina, the historical district, all amazing! The locals were so friendly and of course we asked a lot of people how they like living there. We got a lot of great first hand information and opinions on the neighborhoods and events.
By 2pm we had to leave and we made it home at 3am! Thanks again Diego!
We loved it and I’m hoping this will soon be our new home!
