We are headed to NC in June to scout for places to live when we early retire in a few years. We like laid back, outdoorsy, mountainous small towns. Bicycle preferred over a car/driving. Quirky is good. We currently live in this kind of town in Oregon, which I think is a Hidden Gem, cuz no one outside of the adjoining states seem to know of our town, but there is too much winter/cold weather. So, with that minimal information, does anyone have any suggestions? I've done some research but thought I'd post here to get opinions from locals. Thanks for your time.
