We would love to retire somewhere like the Villages in Florida, but they're too expensive and Florida is too hot. 

We aren't golfers but love the idea of the golf cart community with grocers, shopping, Drs, dentists, movies all nearby and a community center where you can play games, swim, etc. 

Anyone know of these in a more temperate climate? Fishing nearby would be a huge plus!

I am so spoiled with a high expectation for my dream forever home.  I want the best of all worlds --small town ambiance, rural connections, and big city amenities.  Oh, and I don't want to leave CA.  'From the mountains, from the deserts, to the sea' (anyone remember news anchor Jerry Dumphy?), I have lots of options but I will have to do some serious negotiating and additional savings mojo to get what I want. This kind of Fantasy ain't cheap.  LOL/sigh...

We had hoped for Arkansas. But, we have lived in south central Florida for 12 years now and plan to stay, due to grandkids here. I am retired, but husband hopes to keep working for awhile. We don't miss the snow and cold in our home state of Illinois. We have humidity and hurricanes, though. Lots of interesting places in our country!

Wherenin SW KY? I'm from Murray, and even though it's still home, I can't see myself ever going back there to live.

I am considering a move to Tennessee. They have senior friendly tax laws. The weather includes 4 seasons without the heat and cold extremes.
