I have lived in Rocky Mount, which is honestly probably not the ideal retirement community. I would probably pick a smaller town that's somewhat close to the city of Greenville, such as Farmville or Tarboro.

Greenville, Farmville, Bethel, Ayden, Grifton and Little Washington are all options. I would personally choose Greenville or Little Washington. Little Washington especially if talking about retirement, but it is gorgeous IMHO no matter what.

And to the OP, please note that when people say "Little Washington", they mean Washington, NC. There is no actualy town called "Little Washington", if you're looking for it in the Ls It is referred to that way colloquially to distinguish it, obviously, from Washington, DC.

Which city would be best for a combination of lower crime, half decent shopping and dining, and fairly affordable?
