19. My wife and I are considering retiring to NC

Lifelong residents of Chicagoland, we'd like to get away from higher taxes and harsher winters. We've often vacationed in the beautiful NC mountains, but rather than Asheville she'd prefer a location about halfway between the mountains and the sea.

We're still a couple years away from moving, but she recently saw a very nice property just outside Greensboro that would cost twice as much in suburban Chicago.

However, I'm hesitant to move into red meat country. I know NC is a red state, but your post indicates there are pockets of diversity. Could you tell me your current area of residence?
