For the 1st time in the history of tracking Baby Boomer's preferences, the Carolinas have become the #1 retirement destination of Boomers, according to newly released “2010 Baby Boomer Survey” conducted by Del Webb, America’s largest builder of active adult communities.
Though Florida and Arizona remain top contenders, the Carolinas have emerged as the preferred destination for retirement. Both younger and older Baby Boomers ranked either South or North Carolina first as their favored location in retirement – with the other Carolina ranking as their second choice.
There is a huge wave coming. This year in America there are 3300 people per day turning 65. Next year the Boomer Wave triples this number: 10,000 people per day turning 65! If you can beat the rush to the Carolinas, you will save bookoos of dollars.
And what is the crown jewel of all of the Carolinas? It's got to be the Hilton Head Island area. Maybe we're just a wee bit prejudiced, but the national press has certainly though the decades heaped accolade after accolade on our beautiful Island.
