People moving to the area have made living conditions unbearable, needless to say they are not welcomed with open arms.  Traffic is horrible, housing is unaffordable.  The infrastructure of the area has not kept up with the population growth.

For quite a while it's been Ireland I'd like to head to. But I'm only 28% Irish and that isn't enough to get me in! Housing costs are high.  I have been told it's difficult for an American to settle there --I have no idea if this is true.

I'm trynig to make contact with some ex-pat communities in Ireland and Portugal.

Portugal would be a completely different life from everything I've known and that sounds wonderful! To have one last great adventure.

Anyone know anything about retiring to Portugal?

I'm in Iowa now,and bless the nice peoople here, but I want something more exciting. I'm from Chicago and would go back in a minute--if I could afford it.

Conway, SC. Very low property taxes and my wife hates the cold NJ winters.

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).

I love Michigan summers. As a 30 year construction worker, the winters seem longer than I like now. Retirement is around the corner and New Mexico or Arizona would be ideal in the wintertime. I kinda want the best of both worlds.  Tax free pension state would be my choice to live when retired.

We live in the NW and love it but can see why snowbirds are snowbirds. Need somewhere warm for 1/2 the year. Maybe Costa Rica or Honduras.

My wife and I are retired and live in New Jersey. We have sold our home and renting while we decide where we want to move. The choices are either stay in New Jersey or move to Pennsylvania. Each state has it's pros and cons, however, we need some definite info on which state overall is the best for retirees. We do not want to move to Pa. and when we get here find that, overall, it isn't any cheaper than NJ. Can anyone help?
