According to a report by CBS News, Oak Island was named as one of the top 10 beach town for retirees in the United States.
The popular tourist destination is home to a population of about 7,000 people. During the busy summer months, that number typically triples in size.
The report considered multiple factors in choosing their list – "taking into account natural scenery, amenities and activities offered, proximity to health care, taxes, home prices, cost of living and population of people older than 55."
