I'm really thinking of somewhere with the college triangle in North Carolina.

NC is a conservative state, but the college triangle is liberal.

There is one not for profit senior community there that looks especially interesting--question is, but can I afford it?

Murray is a fantastic town!  I'm from there and I really miss it.  It's only drawback (for me at least) is that there are no bookstores (other than a religious one and the one at the university).

I would love to live in the poorest town along the Apachanian Trail in the mountains.

Tennessee has some good places, lots of fishing. Also the Carolinas. Not into fishing or golf, but I know lots of friends who went to Tennessee to retire.

We would love to retire somewhere like the Villages in Florida, but they're too expensive and Florida is too hot. 

We aren't golfers but love the idea of the golf cart community with grocers, shopping, Drs, dentists, movies all nearby and a community center where you can play games, swim, etc. 

Anyone know of these in a more temperate climate? Fishing nearby would be a huge plus!

I am so spoiled with a high expectation for my dream forever home.  I want the best of all worlds --small town ambiance, rural connections, and big city amenities.  Oh, and I don't want to leave CA.  'From the mountains, from the deserts, to the sea' (anyone remember news anchor Jerry Dumphy?), I have lots of options but I will have to do some serious negotiating and additional savings mojo to get what I want. This kind of Fantasy ain't cheap.  LOL/sigh...
