The "Sandhills" are near Pinehurst/Southern Pines. Retirees are what fuel the area (and golf--LOTS of golf).

I guess thats how important it is to move to North Carolina. No matter how old the thread is, people still want to know the best area to move in North Carolina. It will be a plus for the website to save space on the server....maybe?

Salisbury is a nice place, Pinehurst has one of the best hospitals. My aunt works there and I was born there. There is a beautiful small town near Pinehurst called Carthage, which might sound familar because of the nursing home shooting that took place there, but I was told that the cop that shot that guy, was the only guy on duty that morning, so crime must be low if they only need one cop.

I'm pretty sure the OP has 1) already made her/his move by now (or not) and 2) isn't keeping up with this thread anymore.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Post more detail information such as: schools, shopping, home purchase, low crime area, hospitals, doctors, furthering your education, entertainment, etc. What exactly are you looking for in a city or town? I also recommend you join a group for people who have lost loved ones. Are you employed at the time? It is always good to make sure you can transfer employment. As employment here is very slow. Welcome to North Carolina!

You are more likely to hear banjo music playing in the woods if you move to Hickory or Morganton. Anyplace outside of the mountains is going to have a very hot and humid summer. THe problem is, you almost have to be rich to live in the mountains. But I think Hendersonville would be a great middle-ground. You will be close to Asheville and Lake Lure. It's a very nice area for weekend drives, trout fishing, seeing the nearby waterfalls, visiting the vinyards, great shopping, etc. But you will not find many "professional" type jobs in the area. You might be stuck with working retail, foodservice, or something like that. There is a lot of money in that area, but they all made it somewhere else.

Wilmington is another great choice if you can get use to the heat.
