Do you want to retire in Chapel Hill NC?

Although we are now empty nesters, my husband and I moved to Chapel Hill 15 years ago when we had two boys in elementary school and were not remotely ready to retire in Chapel Hill NC. But my husband’s parents had relocated from DC to a well known CCRC, Carol Woods, and we were ready to relocate to be near them. And we’re so glad we did. Our boys became buddies with their grandparents, which enriched their lives and ours, and raising them in Chapel Hill was one of the best decisions we ever made.

Through my in-laws, we became friends with many of the residents at Carol Woods, and were continually blown away by how educated, interesting and fun they are. Among them was Mary Scroggs, whom our boys posed with for the promotional photos of the new Mary Scroggs Elementary School, which they attended at the time. Chris Culbreth, Grey Culbreth’s feisty widow (Grey Culbreth Middle School) was also one of their good friends who never failed to make us laugh. Bob Seymour, of the Seymour Senior Center, is still a close friend and a constant source of inspiration. The list goes on, as an ever changing cast of large characters takes up residence there.

That Carol Woods and Chapel Hill attracts so many fascinating people is no surprise. Most people who retire in Chapel Hill NC are looking for a college town environment with plenty of cultural activities and diversity, a temperate climate, a wide range of dining and shopping options,  and a welcoming community. As we did, you will find all that and more. Once we settled in, we stayed.

Although Carol Woods holds a place dear to our hearts, there are many other excellent CCRCs and retirement communities in The Triangle which  draw retirees from all across the country, each with its own particular vibe and character. In our role as local Realtors with RE/MAX, it’s been our pleasure to help many of our clients discover why so many people choose to retire in Chapel Hill NC. And they love it!
