I love Oregon. Figure out what you want and needs are. Call the chamber of commerce in the city you are interested in and they can send you free information on the area. You can also order at a charge a relocation packet. I have always found this useful.

I'm retired so we have been thinking of where to retire and concluded that we should stay put where we have are or move near where our children are.

As we get older and frail, family support is most important and if your children lives far away, it is hard on them and for yourselve.

If you are not going to continue living in your present home after retirement (not recommended if you chose your home rationally), move to Boise, ID.  Great climate with seasonal changes, relatively small community where people are friendly and helpful, and cheap (but getting more expensive with time).

Although PA is beautiful it is quite expensive and winters are cold.

My husband recently retired, we moved back to Maine to be close to our children, things are not going as planned and as crazy as it sounds we now wish we had stayed in Indiana.  Love being near the kids and grand kids but Maine is a very expensive state to live in.  Have considered Myrtle Beach but can't make up our minds.

I finally have my home the way I want it so I plan to stay here in east central Illinois for awhile. I do however plan to travel on peace and justice trips as long as I am able. I've been to Nicaragua twice and the second time brought 139 new Spanish language books to a small village in the mountains. Education is the beginning of freedom for these friends!

I'm so happy I caught this discussion! I am planning to move off Long Island next June and actively investigating where to live as I would like to stay near water but not in such an expensive location. As I work remote I have great flexibility. I know what I don't want -- any heavy rain area or cold lol. So any insight, suggestions, resources you can share I'd greatly appreciate.

I would prefer to live in the Pacific Northwest but I don't think I can afford it.

Second choice:  Pennsylvania

Third:  Panama
