The "Youngest City in America with a booming economy...

THE SETTING - Jacksonville, NC
Onslow County is Americas fastest-growing county over the past five years, according to a federal agency that tracks economics. Onslow's booming economy is fueled by Marines and sailors stationed at Camp Lejeune and New River Air Station, according to a recent report in the Charlotte Business Journal. The military, agriculture and tourism are the top three economic areas for North Carolina, which bodes well that they are also the top for Onslow County, she said. And Jacksonville is just 30 minutes from Emerald Isle and 55 minutes from historic Wilmington, NC, both favorite coastal resort destinations with pristine beaches and blue water.
