Over all, Gastonia is a nice place. There are numerous threads on the board about Gastonia. Use the search this forum tool.

Will you be working in Gastonia or commuting to Charlotte? Do you need schools? Will you be renting or buying?

Yes, south east Gastonia (Cramerton) is VERY nice. Just as nice as Fort Mill.

Yep! Great place to live and centrally located to everything.

Offers: Shopping, Dining, Historical Stuff, Coffee Shops, Recreation, Outdoorsy stuff
Doesn't Offer: Have to travel to Clt for major nightlife options but there's a few spots around town depending on what you like.

I live in a modest mid west town, and would like to live closer to my daughter in Asheville nc, but would like to be able to take the train to NJ (from Charlotte). There are other towns further east that I may consider that are near Railroads.
I looked at Gastonia, and hickory. I love towns under 50,000, with moderate amenities, but i do not have to have colleges. I like to swm so lakes and or a YMCA would be desirable. I like a place with homes under 100,000, as I do not need high taxes or Homeowners fees.
I realize some of the towns are in the foothills. As one gets older mountain driving in the winter can be hazardous.
So are there any retirement buffs that can give me the lowdown?
