  • East coast living.
  • Born and lived in CT all my life with the exception of my military time.
    We are desperate to move away from this toxic liberal state. We owned a winter home in FL in the past. Our daughter lives in Naples Fl, a real nice place to visit, not sure if it's for us. Thinking of either North or South Carolina. Maybe near Myrtle Beach, SC. Close to the ocean yet a short drive to the mountains.
    All you good people from either of these states please chime in with your first hand comments/choices of the areas.

  • Re: East coast living.
  • Yes, familiar with NC, mostly Davidson, Concord and Boone. Live in FL and have done so for 40 years, love it. Also familiar with Myrtle beach as my NC connections have tendencies to beach there. Today been perusing snow photos from NC grandkids. Schools closed 3 days for 3" of snow. Parents had to use vacation days to care for them. I have seen over 8" in Dec, Jan and Mar in Davidson. I also took the grandkids to Carowinds early one Aug, 109 degrees. I'm in FL and will be staying here. Many folks I have met in NC are halfbacks, they moved south to an area that as unsuitable to them, they missed snow and moved half way back. Moving like that costs cash, you need to spend time visiting and researching all options and find the place that suits your needs best. Asking questions here is just a prelim start.

  • I like va because we get all 4 seasons.
    I have several friends in pinehurst nc area and they love it there too.
    One of my favorites is Smith Mountin Lake near Roanoke Va, there you have beautiful water and mountins. Another favorite is Kilmarnock Va, nice small town right next to the Chesapeake Bay. I would rather fish than hunt so I need to be close to good water.

  • Third vote for piedmont NC. I am 2 mile from the geographical center. 225 to TN., 225 to the Atlantic. 60 from SC and VA. 8 inches of snow and 10 degrees Wednesday, 65 degrees and sunny today. A little bit of everything, and property taxes are less than 1% of property value. My grandson just bought a 3 bedroom brick on 1/2 acre for 45,000.

  • Eastern NC here. Usually temperate, tolerable cost of living except on coast and waterfronts, mostly friendly helpful people. Abundance of tractors. I like it here. SoS
