With its scenic mountain beauty, charming downtown, and excellent medical facilities, Hendersonville, North Carolina has been a popular retirement destination for decades. People from all over the country choose to make Hendersonville their home for this special time in their lives. We have found that many of those who choose to spend their retirement here are from the great city of Atlanta and here are three reasons why.
It’s called Hotlanta for a reason. Those stifling hot temperatures and oppressive humidity start to take their toll after awhile and if you’d like a break from hot and sticky summers, Hendersonville may be for you. With its high elevation, temperatures top out at in the mid 80s in July which may seem cool if you’ve spent most of your life in the Peach State. With that said you won’t be moving to a frozen tundra either; light snow is mostly all you see in the winter here in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
