Hi...moved to Charlotte from Ft. Lauderdale two years ago. It's ok..I do like the seasons and the landscape but missing being so close to the water. Always lived on the coast (originally from New England). Thinking of Charleston or Hilton Head areas...or open to suggestions. See a lot of posts from the younger set but no "seniors".

Are you looking for boating or just to enjoy looking at the water? Charleston gives you a city on the water with lots of dining and entertainment options. Hilton Head is expensive but very nice.

You might give the Crystal Coast a shot, Swansboro, Emerald Isle (http://coastalnc.org/emeraldislenctravelguidecd - broken link), or Beaufort (http://coastalnc.org/beaufortnctravelguidecd - broken link).

All are small towns but it is hard to get away from the water. In fact the area is all about the water. We enjoy living in the area and find plenty of active things to keep us busy.

Thank you for responding dsobotta. I like boating, but really just enjoy being near the water. I will take a look at the three places you suggested. You didn't say which area you were in that you are enjoying?
