North Carolina living is a harmonious blend of a small town hospitality, and big city life. North Carolina has become a favorite for senior living, surpassing even Florida, and Arizona. This eastern gem offers 55+ retirees a wide variety of activities, and recreation with plenty of options in terms of where to settle down. From charming Asheville, named one of the best towns to retire by Forbes, to urban Raleigh, there are 304 beautiful 55+ communities to choose from. With an unparalleled patriotic spirit, and a fond affinity for the arts, baby boomers will wonder what took them so long to get here.



Residents here are known as "North Carolinians," and are proud of where they live. The "Tar Heel" State is divided into three regions known as the Piedmont, Coastal Plain, and mountain vicinity. The beauty of living here is that the weather tends to be less extreme than most eastern states. Temperatures are warmer along the coast, and cooler in the mountains, retirees can enjoy four seasons, and diverse landscapes wherever they choose to live. As with most states on this side of the country, fall, and springtime are breathtakingly spectacular.



Cost of living is below the U.S national average, with home prices higher along the coast, and mountain regions. The central Piedmont area which includes the capital of Raleigh, Charlotte, and Durham averages about $144K and up according to Sperling's Best Places. Other good news on the economic front, is that retirees can enjoy lower taxes. There is an across the board flat rate of 5.75% for 2015-2016, and no estate, or Social Security tax.



Sports fanatics, art connoisseurs, and foodies are going to love it here. With 300 miles of coastline to explore, and ample historic landmarks, there is no shortage of activity, and entertainment. Asheville is nestled in the mountain region of North Carolina, and is a hot spot for night life, music festivals, and boasts the stunning Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Discover a treasure trove of wildlife, breathtaking landscape, and miles of hiking trails. No visit is complete without experiencing the majestic Biltmore Estate, that combines the magic of a fairy tale with the splendor of a European castle. Home of the Carolina Panthers, Charlotte is a fusion of art, and culture. After getting lost in the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, relax with a cold brew or roll up your sleeves for some famous Carolina BBQ. Raleigh is a bustling metropolis featuring exciting music venues, dining, and believe it or not, golf courses that are open until midnight! The state's capital provides plenty of entertainment for active seniors seeking city life, and to be a part of the social scene. The North Carolina University town of Chapel Hill is a charming college town, that is ranked one of the best places to live in the U.S., as well as receiving an A+ rating by Area. North Carolina has something for everyone, and is a place that must be savored one city at a time. For information on how you can take your retirement dreams to the next level,
