And it’s sounds just like it’s spelled–Chock-o-win’-ity. In any event, it is a beautiful woods, water and friendly place to settle.

Three of the greatest benefits of eastern NC are:
1) There are 4 distinct seasons in the year and the cold weather doesn’t linger like in the northeast. We only have one to two months of cold weather!
2) Chocowinity is only about 90 minutes to Raleigh & about 3 hours to Richmond-giving quick access to international airports & benefits of a larger city.
3) Greenville, only 30 minutes away, has the East Carolina Teaching Hospital which provides easy access for exceptional health care.
