Look at the Winston-Salem area. They have WFU there and some other good medical facilities. You're just starting to get toward the mountainous area there.

If heat and humidity are a problem for you, stay away from the coastal plains that runs from the coastal counties about to Raleigh. It is 82 degrees at 12:46 PM and we are heading for a high of 90 degrees before the day is over. I have seen it at 100 degrees in May and by June, July, August, and probably September it will be at least 90 + most of the time. The humidity is usually stiffling during the summer. I would at least get to Raleigh but your better bet is to go even further and get into the mountains or at least at the eastern edge of them. Good luck with your move. And I am sure everyone will be glad to see you when you get moved to North Carolina.

Asheville and surrounding counties should easily meet your needs. We have large numbers of retirees in the area and many part-time residents who live here during the summer months to escape the heat of the flat lands. Daytime highs average 83.3F for July and 82.7F for August, according to the National Weather Service station located at the Asheville-Hendersonville airport. Snow amount is around 15" over the course of an average season. Medical facilities are above average, probably due to the large number of retirees in the area. We have an older average population in this area than NC as a whole. I don't know about jobs and schools other than the University of North Carolina has a campus here.

The historic small towns of Hendersonville, Brevard and Flat Rock are all south and close to the city of Asheville without the associated urban lifestyle and costs.
