Asheboro’s central location allows residents to enjoy all the natural scenic beauty and variety North Carolina has to offer.

Known for its comfortable, easy pace of life, Asheboro is located just two and a half hours from the North Carolina mountains and three and a half hours from the coast. The area experiences the best of all seasons, including vibrant fall color, mild winter temperatures and beautiful spring and summer landscapes.

The city’s cost of living is 13.8 percent lower than the national average, and the average sales price for a single-family home in 2014 was $112,000. With a population of about 25,000, Asheboro is large enough to offer a variety of activities and resources, yet small enough to make new residents feel like important parts of the community.

Asheboro is home to two quality healthcare facilities: Randolph Hospital and Randolph Cancer Center. Duke University Hospital, Wake Forest Baptist Health, UNC Hospitals, High Point Regional, Moses Cone / Wesley Long and Presbyterian Hospital also are located within a 90-mile radius.

Why retire in Asheboro? In addition to a range of recreational facilities and a thriving arts scene, Asheboro is home to the North Carolina Zoo, which is the world's largest natural habitat zoo. What’s more, Asheboro’s convenient location allows residents to take advantage of a range of resources and entertainment offers in the nearby Piedmont Triad towns of Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point.
