EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Cape Carteret, NC

Pros: Can't really boast about Cape Carteret...

Cons: Everything a Podunk Place is made of: small minded; old fashioned; visually notable was a marked % of uneducated population; slow life styles; weak community investments; poor attention to sufficient public beach access; severe lack of Public Parks and Recreation for the community's youth; most areas in this location could use serious beautification of their communities.

This is a good place to Hmmmmmmmm...

General info: This area is a very strange place for me and my family...
