Re: Where do you want to live when you retire?

I'd like to find a town in the northeast/Middle Atlantic states along a train line; also near water, like the ocean, bay or a river.  No need to live on the water, but it would be great to be able to  walk to it.  I realize that the taxes with be a lot more than I pay now (I live in Florida), but living in a town  near mass transit is an OK trade, for me.  Many of the beach towns have housing costs that are often prohibitive .  Suggestions?   

Also, are there any  websites that alllow one to plug in information that might help find some locations?  I've looked at several and they are pretty simplistic, or are connected to retirement communities.  I'd like to avoid a retirement community and live in a town or city.

Sounds like you'd enjoy the Willamette Valley in Oregon. I was thinking Eugene, specifically, from some of your comments--an hour's drive from the beautiful and rugged coastline of the Pacific Ocean (the wonderful McKenzie & Willamette Rivers are nearby, too), great local airport to connect you to major airports, hippie enclave, arts galore, University of Oregon's hometown (bright minds and thriving programs), Oregon residents LOVE their dogs (and cats) so you'd find some kind of animal rescue work, no doubt.  Portland is a doable drive (2 hours approx.) and center of much of what you want, as well, with a thriving arts community--music, writing, performance arts, museum, etc. Housing prices are higher in P-land than Eugene. Recreational and medical marijuana are legal here, not that you asked, but for some, it's a draw. While snow isn't a regular happening for the Willamette Valley, it does occur occasionally. Winter is usually rain and then more rain, but summers are lovely and mild--rarely hitting the high 90s and beyond.

Sorry, posted before I finished--happy fingers !!!  Although you stated you would like to be near BIG water, that would be the only thing missing from your criteria.  However, there are MANY great rivers and lakes with beautiful waterfalls in the mountains and so again I say, give it a look.

You might consider Asheville, North Carolina.  It seems to fill your desired parameters, and is a WONDERFUL city in the Smokey Mountains.  Check it out online, then maybe take a short vacation.

Where do I ant to retire?

Message 9 of 68 (5,355 Views)

Near water -- big water.I'd love the Atlantic or the Pacific, even the Mississippi or Lake Superior or Lake Michigan.

I'd like to find a community of sartists-- I'm a writer and would love to live where there are other writers, painers, sculptors, dancers  -- for conversation, stimulation, friendship.

I live in  a nice, bland mid size city now. It's not where I was born and I have no attachment to it.I have two children,scattered,am divorced and no other family. I'd need to find a place open to new people.

 

I grew up in Chicago and love it, but can't afford where I'd like to live -- and if I have to move into a suburb I might as well stay where I am.

 

I was a hippie, am a hippie -- would love a small progressive town, near water where I could my dachshund and volunteer for Animal Rescue.

 

I lived through Mid West winters all my life and that wouldn't both me particulalry -- as long as I had a garage!

A very specific and detailed description of your wants/needs/desires/hopes and dreams. Impressive/intriguing/inspiring to say the least. Why only limited German? speaking. And when are you moving ? Smiley Wink
