Tired of the Cold?
Many individuals, and couples, currently living in the North Eastern states, decide they would like to move further south to avoid the cold weather when they retire. Charlotte is a popular choice to retire to as it doesn’t get too hot or too cold. The average temperature in December is 50 for instance while in the summer it is around 85 without terribly high humidity. And who can argue that the North Carolina blue sky is a wonderful thing to wake up to day after day?! Much better than the dreary, cloudy days I experienced in Pennsylvania!
A popular trend lately are the 55 and over communities geared toward retired adults who want to remain active and prefer single family homes but would like resort style amenities with amenities such as full lawn care, social clubs and planned excursions. So what are some good choices for retirement communities around Charlotte?
