Beautiful beaches; affordable homes; low taxes; year round golf on dozens of nearby courses; affordable postsecondary education options…so many reasons Wilmington, NC became a choice relocation destination for us. And, of course, General Electric was a big part of that too! Making the decision to uproot the family and move half way across the country wasn’t an easy one, yet the benefits have resoundingly outweighed the downsides. As our families shovel their way out of the snow, or hunker down away from the subzero cold, we take walks on the beach, discuss our next golf outing, play tennis with friends after work, and ready our garden beds for what to plant next. Yes, it has been cool and even a bit rainy as of late, but that just gives us a reason to turn on the fireplace, and curl up with a fuzzy blanket, not something that is necessary much of the year here.
