Jim..... DW and I made a similar move about 8 years ago. Boston native, lived around there about my whole life, til we decided we'd had enough of the winters. Targeted the mid-Atlantic, wound up in Raleigh at the behest of her company.

No regrets other than family, but you will have to adjust to the summers. The eastern Carolinas are lowland coastal plains, and summers are very hot and very humid. Period.

Western, nearer the mountains, is somewhat better. Others have suggested the Greenville SC area, and I would concur. Several attractive little towns along the highway there. Gaffney is one I've had occasion to visit a few times. Very nice place.

Good luck!

They changed the law in GA. Now you pay the taxes the first year you register it in GA and then it costs you $20 a year to renew your registration. If you purchased/registered your vehicle/RV in Georgia before 1012 (?) you are stuck under the old law where you will have to pay the ad valorem taxes every year.

Only if it has an engine. I bought this in 2014 but since it's a towable it goes under the old law.

Thanks. I didn't realize the new law only pertained to vehicles with engines.

Yeah, I found that rather irritating myself. Couple that with the county not being able to tell me what the tag would cost until I brought a final purchase agreement in and my dealer telling me that tags for these run $300-400 a year I jumped straight to perturbed when I was told $709 a year for my tag. Our roads must be inlaid with gold! Lol!

Thinking of moving

Left NH 12 years ago, Beautiful White Mts, not like the flatlands of Mass, nor the taxes and all the other BS, Plus record breaking snow. Anything north of St Petersburg Fl. is cold and dreary. Take the advice given to travel and then decide. A number of good places to settle down with low cost factors and good weather all year.

And now they want to raise the tax on gas to pay for the repair on those roads.
