My husband and I are from NJ. We think we want to retire in SC because we like the state. Does anyone know of teachers from NJ--and where in SC do they retire? We are early 60's, looking for no to low crime, and a nice view. We would appreciate any help you could give us! Thank you!

I am a retired teacher that lived in NJ. I know that some people look in Murrels Inlet area and along Carolina Forest Blvd. both in Myrtle Beach area. However, I live in North Carolina in between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington, NC (about 40 minutes to either one) and there are a few nice developments along Route 211 off of Route 17. I'm in River Sea Plantation (first development on right). There's also Winding River, Palmetto Creek, Sea Watch and St. James(very upscale and expensive). Our area is not built up yet. We're right near Southport which is an old, quaint town along the Cape Fear River.

I live in Wildwing off 501 near coastal carolina University. I love the location and the Wellness center at the hospital can't be beat. My husband and I are both NYC retired teachers.

Thank you so much for responding! There seem to be so many people relocating to from the NE to SC! We like Pawleys Island a lot because it's so quiet--but we are also concerned about hurricanes and will probably rent a furnished condo for a full year cycle before making a decision. Thank you again!

Hi Soon,

Retired here from MD 4 years ago in Murrells Inlet. I agree that Pawleys is really nice, but it was just a little too far away from shopping and things to do in the Myrtle area. Just my 2 cents worth, Murrells Inlet is a compromise of the two. You are away from the traffic of Carolina Forest (though that is a nice area, too). My son goes to Coastal Carolina so I know that area pretty well.

MI has nice developments that are chock full of NJ, NY retirees, so you would feel like you're right at home in NJ here. Except for the traffic, the housing costs, and the weather. Come on in, the water's fine.
