Quiet wonderful neighborhood perfect for retirement or just raising a family. Right on the neuse river so plenty of things to do such as boating, camping or just taking a hike. Just minutes away from shopping and dining. It's just a good place to live and even mentioned on good morning America as on fo the best places to live in the United States.
