NE Coast near OBX. Notice I didn't say "all" of the coast. I still wouldn't live in Jacksonville. Many family members have come and gone through there.

I grew up in Franklin and have lived in Clyde, Sylva, and Asheville. I love it!

Looks like there are lots of votes for the mountains, but if you don't like a lot of unpredictable weather in the winter and don't just love the mountains, I wouldn't recommend it.

Teaching positions are a little hard to come by in NC right now, though, so you might want to look into the availability of jobs before committing to move.
This is something to consider!
