We retired a couple of years ago. We sold our house in Winnetka, Il and purchased a smaller home near downtown Fort Lauderdale. We love being near the beach and a short distance to restaurants and shops. When it gets really hot in the summer we escape to Chicago to spend time with our adult children

 Donna, have you looked into the Grove or Miami area? It's just a bit East of Tulsa County, but it's a beautiful area and Grand Lake is stunning. Housing in Grove is pretty high for Oklahoma, but you would probably think it's very reasonable. Also, there are a few small towns right in that area that would have very reasonable housing.

I still have about a year and a half but was thinking I’d like to live in the Tulsa County area. A nice place with little or no crime. I’m from the east coast so buying a home alone here is not possible. Any area or town suggestions would be appreciated.

Right where I am now, in the foothills of NC.  Enjoy all 4 seasons, the mountains are great for a day trip.  Lots of parks, libraries, and festivals.  The ocean is 4 hours away.  I like to visit, but I am home now.  Can't wait to wake up to the birds songs with no alarm, and find my joy each day in retirement.

I'm really thinking of somewhere with the college triangle in North Carolina.

NC is a conservative state, but the college triangle is liberal.

There is one not for profit senior community there that looks especially interesting--question is, but can I afford it?

Murray is a fantastic town!  I'm from there and I really miss it.  It's only drawback (for me at least) is that there are no bookstores (other than a religious one and the one at the university).

I would love to live in the poorest town along the Apachanian Trail in the mountains.

Tennessee has some good places, lots of fishing. Also the Carolinas. Not into fishing or golf, but I know lots of friends who went to Tennessee to retire.
