Best place to retire

Posted April 27, 2009 9:21 a.m. EDT

It’s about time I got back to blogging! I’ve missed all of you and your interesting comments. I was in New Zealand for two weeks with only sporadic access to computers so I decided to take a blog break. But I’m back and I’d like to get things going again. By the way, I am finishing up a special online series on the New Zealand trip including a slide show and I hope you will check it out.

Today’s question: where is the best place to retire in North Carolina? Feel free to give us your top five or top ten communities. I know there have been numerous surveys on this issue but I’d like to get your thoughts. Pinehurst, Asheville, Oriental, New Bern and Blowing Rock come to mind but I am sure there are other favorites. Please discuss.
