Best places to retire

North and South Carolina cities make list of top 10 retirement cities

There are many factors to consider when you're looking for the right city for retirement. Besides the cost of living, it’s helpful to take into account the setting and the accessibility to entertainment and medical services. Forbes.com recently compiled a list that all of these variables and listed Charleston, South Carolina, and Charlotte, North Carolina, as prime retirement destinations.

Charleston's attraction lies in its tax rates, which are the lowest in the nation. The climate is generally very temperate, cost of living is affordable and there is little risk of a healthcare shortage.

In Charlotte, retirees will find an urbane and sophisticated atmosphere - the city is second only to New York as the country's largest banking capital. In addition to an easily navigated street layout and cheap cost of living, there is also dependable healthcare.

Del Webb offers a number of retirement communities for retirees interested in moving to one of the Carolinas without losing the intimacy of a close-knit neighborhood. Sun City Carolina Lakes is just a short distance from Charlotte and offers residents 1,512 acres of rolling forests dotted here and there with lakes and ponds.
