Wilmington is a 1/3 bigger than Greenville and growing at twice the rate

Industry wise it is night and day and no comparison when it comes to airports and economy.

Greenville is a college town in the center of eastern NC in a very poor and repressed area of North Carolina. Just drive outside of Greenville a few miles and you see communities that have struggled and continue to struggle. Greenville is one of the few Eastern NC cities with a growing and strong economy but it is not the same as Wilmington. You can't compare the two as each city has a different economy due to their location and history.

Wilmington is the largest coastal city in North Carolina where the university is a bit of an afterthought when it comes to the economy. Both are great cities to live in (I have lived in both) that have their pro's and con's. Not to mention there is a VERY LARGE population of ECU alumni in Wilmington due to its size and economy.

Both are small potatoes compared to Charlotte, the Triangle and the Triad. But, I would rather live in either Greenville or Wilmington than the three big metro areas above. I will return to the East once I am done making money in the Triangle
