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?

What do you want to do when you get there?  What gives you meaning in your life? Will you find it there?

You’re so lucky to be a writer. I’ve always wanted to retire to Fairhope, Al. When I was a young kid, I was told writers, like Herman Hesse, retired there. It’s a beautiful area on Mobile Bay near Gulf Shores. 

St. Augustine is a beautiful area, but I like being on the Gulf because the water is warmer. 

Fairhope isn’t as expensive as St A, but it’s a lot more expensive than when I was a kid. Some people are moving to Daphne and Dauphin Island which is one of my favorite places in the world. 

We currently live in Overland Park, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City and I just hate the weather. It snowed on Easter.

Good luck to you.

Henderson NV. Yes it’s hot... but cheaper to buy a home there. Also, I’m tired of the cold
