Charlotte NC Senior Living
Seniors wanting to retire to a city that not only has local appeal but is a hub for international destinations should look no further than the “International Gateway to the South” – Charlotte, North Carolina.
Known as Queen City, Charlotte has no shortage of activities and events for seniors.
Sports fans will love cheering on the Charlotte Bobcats or the Carolina Panthers. Fans of baseball can watch the Charlotte Knights compete in AAA play.
If you prefer to participate in the fun, there are over 40 public golf courses to tee-off at and plenty of water activities to be enjoyed at Lake Norman.
Charlotte loves its food! Seniors will love the Taste of Charlotte festival in June and the Time Warner Cable BBQ & Blues festival in the fall.
Plus, each January and June, popular establishments participate in Charlotte Restaurant Week and offer diners their best meals for only $30!
There’s no shortage of cultural diversions to be found in Charlotte either. Known as the “City of Frescos”, seniors can admire Ben Long’s rare artwork at the Bank of America Corporate Center, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and in Transamerica Square.
Be sure to catch the latest Broadway hit at Blumenthal Performing Arts Broadway Lights Series or enjoy spectacular art at one of Charlotte’s art museums including the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Mint Museum Uptown and the Mint Museum Randolph.
On average, Charlotte has a lower cost of living than the rest of the country so your hard-earned money will go farther when you retire here. 9% of the population is 65 and over, which means this is really a city that seniors should come check out! It also means plenty of opportunities for you to make new friends.
