Default looking for new home far from indiana

I just retired on disability, am 54, and have lived in indianapolis all my life. I hate indianapolis, and i'm tired of indiana winters. I'm looking for a warmer-in-the-winter-less-trifling place to move to with my pets. Not in a big city, preferably more towards the countryside. I've been looking at North Carolina, Louisiana, and Washington State. Is there anywhere out there where people still know how to act in public? Or is it all rudeness and thuglife everywhere? Sick, sick, sick of it. I don't care about nightlife, entertainment, fine restaraunts or any of that bushwa. Woods, fields, small towns, quiet, streams and rivers that aren't too polluted to fish in. Wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Thank You, susan,

The fact that you say you're disabled is a red flag to me. Does that need to be taken into consideration for anything?

South Carolina is warmer and has lots of rural areas.

I have never in my life seen the word "bushwa," but I looked it up, and it's a real word. I like it. I'll be using it. Thank you.

Not to meaning to make a sweeping generalization, but here it goes:

One difference between the more rural areas down here versus up there is that the poverty is more concentrated in the rural areas in the South, whereas up North, it's more in the inner cities. (OK, I know there are examples where isn't the case but let me continue).

In Indiana, most rural areas are very safe and clean. That's not so much true here. You should come visit and get a feel for things.

I love it here. And there are some very lovely rural areas. I would much rather live in NC than IN or IL or the NE. I'm not bashing the rural areas but if someone comes down here thinking it's going to be Lancaster County, PA with horse and buggies and all, that's not what it's like.

But I say come down -- the weather is great!

I have to agree with jgb.

Im with you that Indianapolis is not such a great place, but if you are looking for "countryside....where people still know how to act in public? Or is it all rudeness and thuglife everywhere?", I think NC will generally compare pretty poorly with your average small town in IN, although there are always exceptions.

Sure IN is colder than here, but if you want to find freindly, clean small towns and plenty of countryside you should just consider moving an hour south.
