Hello, I'm a 55 yr. old woman living in Albany, NY. My son is attending college this fall, so I'm looking to relocate to a coastal city in NC. I work in retail and would like a city with jobs and a 55+ yr old community for retirement. Any suggestions?

Your best prospect is Wilmington. There are very few actual 55+ communities in the area, one being the Jensen's manufactured home community in Hampstead. There are numerous single-level condos and townhouses in Wilmington.

Please see some other recent threads for other options:
55 Plus or 62 communities?

Why do you say Wilmington, Goldenage1? We were there just this past week and have ruled it out. East side of Wilmington is just like Mt. Pleasant in SC. traffic galore.

We are now looking at Greenville because of less people. I don't think it might be as busy as Wilmington.

Looks like there is a large hospital and a heart hospital of which we are looking for. We are both 63.

I've seen some nice new houses in Arbor Hill area.

BTW I am originally from Albany NY too. Only go back there to visit now once a year.

This poster specified that she want to be in a "coastal" city. I don't consider Greenville to be "coastal" since it is at least an hour and a half to the beach. (I would be much happier if the forum owners renamed the sub-forum to "Eastern North Carolina".

If the OP comes back and said she would be happy with Greenville, that's her choice.

Wow! someone from Albany. I befriended you in hopes of keeping in touch. Looking to visit NC
later this year. It would be great to have a contact while I'm there.


I haven't explored the Greenville area yet, but now I plan on taking a look.


Thanks
Lori
