I guess I love that my family came from there for many many generations. My family had been settled there since before my hometown existed.
I'm from Eastern NC, so many of our towns are small...even Greenville in Pitt County is considered small by most standards.
What I love most is the small town feel...the towns around here "sleep", meaning by 10 or 11pm weeknights, the streets are empty for the most part. And it's quiet. For that reason, I don't think I could ever live in a big city.
I was not born here. I am a Yankee transplant originally from Long Island NY. I just love the Raleigh area and my town of Wendell. Everyone down here is so much friendlier and I like the slower pace of things. I still go to Ny to visit. But I would never move back. I have been here now for almost years. Love it.
