Crystal Coast Economic Development Foundation

The Crystal Coast is a Tech Worker Paradise

Carteret County (aka “The Crystal Coast”) offers an unparalleled lifestyle for the tech or gig worker or entrepreneur. The beaches, sounds, rivers and waterways are globally recognized for their beauty, wildlife and recreational opportunities, but there is so much more.

Carteret County Schools are among the state’s best, and Carteret Health Care has become the first North Carolina hospital to join the Mayo Care Clinic Network. The county boasts the state’s lowest property tax rate, and housing prices are very affordable compared to the Triangle.

New I-42 will provide a non-stop connector from the Triangle to the Crystal Coast, making travel quick and easy for remote workers who choose to live at the coast.
