About a decade ago, a company for whom I worked relocated most of my department to Greenville.
For those who went, they maintained their CT pay and (compared to their NC coworkers) lived liked dukes (maybe not kings)

I do not know if you will have enough "CITY" in Greenville, but there IS an airport. I think the Research Triangle might be more your speed, but there is no fantastic mass transit.
You WILL have to drive everywhere, and some of that traffic during rush hour can be brutal - but if you are retired, well, you won't much need to drive during peak times and Dutch can deal with it, as he does not have a 9-5 type of job, anyway...right.

But Yes, the CoL & Housing are great - winters are more mild, you are still close to a major airport, beaches & mountains...I see no reason not to go take a look.

I worked just outside Raleigh (in Cary) several years ago and i used to visit CHapel Hill - so that is my frame of reference.

However, dkeiley moved from NY to Greenville for a few years and it was (you can probably find the posts if you care to search) not where they wanted to stay...
