  • I'd try something like South Carolina. They have mild winters and a homes with great southern charm!

  • Look at the towns along the shores of Myrtle beach or south east NC near Emerald Isle. They are beautiful.

  • I live in eastern NC and its not bad in the winter. We may occasionally get 1 day of snow during the winter months. Average winter temp is between 40-50, and can occassionally get into 30's(when we have that chance of snow). Of course if you are closer to the shore you probably won't get any. There are alot of places too that have historic homes so i'm sure you would be able to find something to your liking.

  • I would consider North Carolina.

  • Gotta go with the North Carolina votes, I know many who have moved there and love it. Mild winters, yet not too hot, nice hometown feel, affordable.

  • Savannah Ga. is great, too. Hot as Hades in the summer though. Got to plug my hometown, Chattanooga, Tn. We have some wonderful historic areas, and the winters are not bad.
