Greene County

in North Carolina

greene

Greene County in North Carolina is becoming more popular with retirees. Around 20% of the population is currently over 65, which is due to increase over the next few years. One reason for its popularity is the range of activities available, including visiting the Greene County Museum to learn about the area's history or walking along the Greene County Rails to Trails path. Several recreational facilities are on offer, including the Snow Hill Community Park and the Greene County Senior Center.

The county also attracts seniors because of its low cost of living, which is 19.8% lower than the national average. The county's crime rate is also 42% lower than the national average, offering safety and security. With a mild climate, averaging 64.3 degrees Fahrenheit, it's also perfect for seniors looking to enjoy outdoor activities. Finally, several healthcare options offer quality care for seniors. Vidant Medical Center in Greenville and Wayne UNC Health Care in Goldsboro are within a 30-minute drive of the county. They offer various medical services, such as cardiology, oncology, and orthopedics. Both also provide specialized care for seniors, such as geriatric medicine and physical therapy.

Greene County is home to several towns, including Snow Hill, Hookerton, and Maury, all offering something unique depending on what seniors seek. Snow Hill is home to around 1,600 and features historical sites such as the Greene County Courthouse and the Governor Richard Caswell Memorial. Hookerton is smaller, with a population of 500, and hosts an impressive annual Christmas parade. Finally, Maury has a similar population and offers some pleasant parks for seniors to explore. Zip codes in Greene County include 28580, 28501, 28590, 28525, and 28551.
