Wow! I cannot believe this question was overlooked by us because it is an easy one to answer.
YES, it is a great place for seniors. There are neighborhoods and communities that are focused on senior living, golf course communities, senior activities and most importantly a diverse group of people outside of the senior community. Perhaps you may or may not have heard of Fearrington Village, Meadowmont or Carolina Meadows, just to name a few. If you are not inclined to live in a neighborhood focused on retirees, you will have many other wonderful options.
If you are still considering making the move I would be happy to send you a relocation package with the information you are looking for.
My apologies that you were overlooked for so long.
