I live in Eden, NC and I kind of like it here. We have a Drive in Theater and some really good independent restaurants here we have a cool coffee shop called 'Let it Be' downtown that blows Starbucks away any day! Yeah there are some bad areas you don't want to go after dark, but I always carry my Sig so I'm not worried.

True, there aren't many jobs here, but like the video says, it's not a bad retirement community. Good thing I'm retired! Lol
