Already checked out Western Carolina in the Asheville area along
with Chapel Hill and Cary areas.

Now heading to Myrtle Beach area during spring break and during the summer
months to help decide what is the best place to relocate once the
second child moves onto college in a couple of years.

Liked Asheville, NC tremendously and did not like Cary areas.

Heading to see some areas in Brunswick County, North Carolina near
Calabash and Wilmington.

But the reason for my question is what can anyone tell me about Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island?

We are not specifically looking to be near the water or have waterfront property but are willing to spend anywhere from the 300-400's for something nice with good medical, nice community (preferably gated with clubhouse), good shopping, good restaurants, sports activities and a nice place to retire although we have not hit the magical 50 age yet.

The realtor we were speaking to was really trying to shove those areas down our throat even though he was not listening to what we were telling him.

Any comparisons between the Brunswick County area in NC to the areas adjacent to Myrtle Beach?

We are heading down from New Jersey so we want a quieter, more peaceful place to be without all the congestion or touristy areas.

Thanks for anyone taking the time to read or share their thoughts.

Have a great day!!

Here are a few threads that may help you on Pawleys Island, Litchfield & Murrells Inlte:

Moving to SC: North or South of Georgetown?
Surfside Beach, Murrells Inlet, or Pawleys Isalnd, Help me make a choice

There are many, many choices that would fit your criteria in the South Strand. I am not very familiar with Brunswick County but the few times that I have driven through it seemed much less developed than Horry & coastal Georgetwon Counties. I liked Sunset Beach.

Let me know if there is something in particular you are looking for & maybe I could point you in the right direction.
