Looking around a bit. I live here near Annapolis ( Crowsville on the severn.) Its very nice but the taxes and the people they elect in this state ( to many Democrats) make it hard to retire here. I was looking at Calabash NC or south Delaware kind of near the beach but not right on it. I also took notice of coal fire plants and cancer rates and chicken farms smells in that area. Is this over-blown??? Any concern from anyone living there now?

thanks,

john

Generally, the further you get from the coast, the less expensive it is. Chicken coops will be easy to avoid - just don't live downwind of one (they are not as prevalent as some people apparently think, particularly near the coast, given the value of real estate). The power plant is isolated - just don't live near it. Democrats will be harder to avoid, as Delaware is a pretty solid blue state. Southern Delaware still tends to elect Republicans to local offices, but I understand that dynamic is shifting a bit in eastern Sussex.

Can't help you on NC. My gut tells me its cheaper and the state is definitely more conservative. Suggest you post on the NC forums and get some local perspective.

Having been to or lived in both, generally I prefer NC but it depends on the specific area. Wilmington, NC is nice as are some of the outlying areas.

What about the Palmata bugs in that part of NC. Are they as bad there as say FLA or SC?

We Democrats control both chambers of the Delaware legislature, hold the governorship and almost all of the important state offices, as well as DE's congressional delegation. If you don't like Democratic government you might consider going elsewhere.

Not in my experience.

Calabash/Brunswick County -- one of the few beach areas of NC I haven't been. although close to north myrtle beach, sc.

Grew up on a chicken farm, yes it smells, along with the pig and cow farms. But we all love to eat don't we Chicken farms are hard to miss. You could live in a marshy, coastal area as that smells great

Coming from Annapolis, you may like the Lewes area the most.
