I'm about six years away from retirement and am not sure what direction I want to go. Lived in Los Angeles all my life but would like to get out of city. Don't want hot sticky summers and don't want freezing winters.Could me and my wife survive the winters in Ashville NC.How practical is it to be a snow bird? My wife loves to shop, how far to nearest large mall?

Thanks,

Asheville has 4 seasons since it is close to the mountains in western NC. Winters will be colder than rest of the state and summers cooler. It is a very cosmopolitan town with great shopping. We've had a ton of discussion about Asheville at http://www.topretirements.com/forum/f144/NORTH_CAROLINA/Asheville.html
good luck

Asheville just got 9 inches of snow in one day in February so it does get quite cold during winter in Asheville. The summers are hot and get too humid for me. Asheville Mall is a nice place to shop as they have a Belk.
