As a military family choosing where we live is crucial. We chose to live in Bunnlevel because it allowed my husband to be close to his work on the base and made my commute to Wake county for work reasonable. I like the area because it has a rural feeling with being 10-15 minutes away from either city for shopping. The downside to the area is all of the "major" roads to Wake county are small and therefore can make travel times take longer.
The neighborhood I live in is great and is filled with military families who are all genuinely caring people. The way the lots were designed allow for families to still have privacy yet still have the perks of having neighbors.
