Anywhere on the beach along the Gulf Coast. Even with hurricanes it would be a great place to live there again. Live in North Texas now. We are in Tornado Alley. My house has been hit 3 times so there would be much difference.

We are looking to move from CT to New Hampshire -- no state income tax on retirement income, NO sales tax.  While you pay property tax (around $6K/year on a small/med home), it's still considerably lower than what people have posted for other states.  At 6K per year for property tax, no state income tax or sales tax, I see us being ahead by about 10K per annum.

I would suggest looking into southern Europe - Southern Spain, Portugal, etc.  All these places have great healthcase, transportation, and are very affordable.  They can be hot in the summer but we plan to go here for winters (can't stand winters anymore) and you can get great apartment deals on Airbnb like place renting more than a month.

 

Sadly, we still have another 7-8 years to retire and hoping we're in good health to be able to travel and enjoy.

 

Best of luck to all of you!

 

P.S.  we visited Spain in Feb, going back in two days - food rocks and cheap.

Hope you have LOTS of money. It's a very expensive place to live. Traffic is atrocious, people aren't friendly, and the crime rate, depending on where you are, can be quite high. Also, depending on where you live, there may not be bus service or a grocery store within miles.  Flooding is rampant in certain spots. Flood insurance is a must in pretty much any area.  Oh, and it's hot from May to November, and even when it's not, it's humid (which makes it seem even colder when it's cold).

 

We've lived here 23 years, and that's been 22 years too long.

I currently live in Annandale Virginia.  In two years when I retire I'm planning to relocate to Charleston South Carolina.

It is reported about 10,000 baby boomers retire daily.

Some of them want stay home where they are.

Some want to move to other place to enjoy their retirement.

Do you want retire and stay where you are?

Or do you want move to a community where you can make friends and share commen interests?
