When looking for a place to retire spend the time to explore locations. You presumabley have the time and money to travel so use it.

 

We flew to Denver,rented a car and spent enough time to become familiar with Colorado,Arizona and New Mexico. We ultimately moved to New Mexico and never regretted it.

 

When we decided to go urban we spent 2 weeks each in   Charllotte,NC,Atlanta,GA and SanDiego,CA. We moved to SanDiego and never regretted it.

My answer exactly. Have no need to move to a foreign area and start over again when I have a beautiful home where my family and friends are.

I'm also leaning toward Los Angeles, but I don't have an acceptable, practical reason.  I lived in San Diego for two years.  I couldn't afford living there even while working a part time job while also working a full time job, but I felt like I belonged there.  I haven't lived in Los Angeles, but until recently I visited a couple of times a year and had the same feelings.  I'd like those feelings to be permanent for the last few years of my life.

I lived in Phoenix AZ in my school years and early working career years.  Had to move to neighboring New Mexico for my career in my mid 20's.  Always thought I would return.  Well, over time the Phoenix area has become a huge overcrowded mess of a place!   Lot's of crime, high taxes, high cost of living, etc.  New Mexico, not much better, live near Albuquerque now and although I like our community alright the crime rate has increased over 250% in the past 10 years.  Drug use, theft, murder, all of it is out of control.  Lots of gangs from South America (think MS 13, yes they are here folks!).  So I am looking to get out! 

 

We have family in the Branson MO area, we have visited there many times and love it!  Sure, the weather can be a pain but same goes for the southwest.  I watch the weather between the both and quite frankly they aren't that different tempurature wise most of the time!  Big difference is dry in the southwest, humid in the midwest!  I think it is a good enough trade for somewhere that I probably will not need an electified fence around my porperty to keep out the vermin!
