Hendersonville was recently voted one of the safest cities and the best place to retire in North Carolina.

When deciding on the best places to retire, tax friendliness, recreational and social opportunities for seniors, and availability of medical care were some of the things that were considered.

Out of all of the North Carolina cities, Hendersonville ranked number 1.

Here’s a list of how Hendersonville compared to other top cities in NC:

  1. Hendersonville
  2. Morehead City
  3. Whiteville
  4. Pinehurst
  5. Marion
  6. Ahoskie
  7. Washington
  8. Smithfield
  9. Brevard
  10. Shelby

Also, according to a 2016 study by home security and financial website CreditDonkey, Hendersonville was voted one of the safest cities in NC.

They determined this by looking at each city’s violent and property crime data.

They then came up with a score for each city that was based on factors in population size, murders, rapes, robberies, aggravated assaults, burglaries, larcenies, and motor vehicle thefts and arsons.
