Hi, there ... I've been researching the cities of North Carolina. It seems as if every area has wonderful things to offer. And, while all of that makes for lots of great options, it's also making me more confused about which areas to target for job hunting. I'm a single woman who will still need to work for another 10+ years. Can anyone give me some suggestions of areas that might fulfill some of what I'm looking for: good employment opportunties, moderate to high income, moderate to low housing, a smaller town that is close to larger, active city, lots of greenry with hills & some water (of any type), and, drum roll, please ... since, I'm 52, an nice amount of an older population would be sensational!
Thank you, Mari

Mari, a lot depends on your field. What type of job will you be looking for?

My background is in business; mostly bookkeeping, accounts receivable or payable, head cashier, office manager, etc. I've been working at a community college for the last 14 years, and my prior working years before that was in the corporate world. I'm open to either.

In that type of work and being open, you could probably find a job in most of NC's metros. The Asheville/Hendersonville area has a good share of retirees and is an awesome place. Asheville itself is a bit expensive, not sure about Hendersonville. Fletcher is in between those two cities and may be an option. Asheville's other suburban areas are affordable as well. The Charlotte area is great too and has a new planned Sun City retirement community, but might be out of your price range. I'm not sure about what the Raleigh area (another good area) has to offer retirees. For what you're looking for, I'd look at the Asheville/Hendersonville area. Good luck in your search!!!
