Abstract:
This special NORTH CAROLINA magazine community profile supplement features Onslow County. The Marine Corps forms the foundation of the county's economy, contributing an annual $2.8 billion and employing more than 4,600 civilians. A growing tourism market and an agricultural tradition also contribute to the economy. As tobacco has declined, a number of farmers have turned to agritourism. The county is also attractive to retirees and new businesses, such as Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Best Buy.
