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?

Right now we live in Alaska, I suppose we may stay here in Alaska until the weather becomes a hardship.

Does anyone kn ow anything about St. Paul, Minnesota.

I'd be moving there alone and would need just a one bedroom.

I'm 69, but I don't think I'm too old to start over.

I'm a writer and would like to live in the artistic community if there is one?

I had also thought of out of town, such Cannon Falls, but that would probably be too far for me drive.

I lived one year in Red Wing, MN, and love the country and water, and one year in Hastings, I've heard Hastings is more of a real community now?

I'd appreciate any information or anywhere you could direct me to find out what I need.

Thank you.

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.

We were thinking about retiring in or about Clinton Missouri. 

 

We cuttently live live in Illinois and are trying to wait patiently to get out of this state. 

 

Is Missouri a pension friendly state? 

 

Thank you,

When I retire, either early or later, I would like to move to Montana. I lived there before, for 3 years and I loved it. I've been an over-the-road truck driver and driven through all 48 states. I've seen so many beautiful areas, but I believe Montana has the best. 

I'll be turning 60 in 3.5 days(12/08) and looking forward to it.

Planning on moving to the Philippines in January because of the low cost. It's hot, no snow ever. On my small social security check and 401K it may be the pefect solution. Entertainment will consist of beaches, jet skiing, walking around and observing the people in different cities and towns. Of course the larger cites have movies, huge malls, cheap massages, etc. The healthcare is cheap but the best is found in private hospitals. Dental is extremely cheap. Anyway if the fun fizzles in a few years Thailand and Malaysia are nearby.

Been there, done that. They don't like US there. You may find it difficult in the cities. Traffic is so bad, it took 2 hours to go 2 miles. Extreme poverty alongside wealth, and a LOT of crime. No snow, but the typhoons will get you. Must like bugs, snakes, rats.
