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?

My wife and I plan to live abroad and move from one country to the next every 12-18 months.  It is pretty ambitious, but that's our plan at this time.

I have lived in Florida most of my life, but it is just so hot and humid. At this point, my plan is to move to Asheville, NC in about 10 years when I am nearing retirement.

I have lived in Los Angeles all of my life and now that I am retiring, I want to move to GA. I have a 3 year old grandson there that I want to bond with, and I am ready to leave California.

I retired at 64 after living for 20 years in the Chicago suburbs. We wanted warmth and a city environment. We chose the Victoria Park neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale, Fl walking distance to Las Olas Shops and restaurants and a short bike ride from the beach. We have a small three bedroom house with a large yard and a great pool. We could not be happier with our choice. The kids love to come down winter and spring and we spend our summers at our condo in downtown Chicago

I am retired @83, ... Bought into our CCRC  here:  

Liberty Village 

back in 2004, while we were still snowbirding to Florida... 

We lit, feel comfortable for the rest of our lives, for whatever may happen.  We live in a "Villa"... a regular 1500 s.f. home but have access to the apartments, assisted living, nursing home or memory care as needed... A great midwest town, with low trafiic and all stores and entertainment needs within a few miles. 

 

This is the way future Continuing Care facilities willbe all over the US.  If you go to the site, go to the FAQ... part and watch the short video... (that's our home in one of the videos.)

 

Could not be happier.  Feel safe, social, healthy (full service health/exercise center) and  transportation if and when we need it.

I would Love to retire in Hawaii, why?  The people are sooooo friendly.  But, the taxes will Eat you alive.  I have lived there for 30 years.  But, everything keeps rising, everytime you turn around, really.  You get a raise at work, good, right, then they raise your rent, then grocery items go up, then the bus rates go up, then you think that's not too bad but then they raise the tax on EVERYTHING YOU BUY!  So, your literally swimming in taxes!

Hawaii is a Tourist Trap and A Tax Trap as well.  Great weather, beautiful skies, but swimming is only good on the North Shore, it's not polluted yet.

Its nice to buy a home if your a millionaire but then they Raise the property taxes, again and again and again, till it chokes families.

So,Where to go?  How about Las Vegas? blue skies, people are friendly, your NOT taxed on everything,plus there are so many people from Hawaii owing to Nevada, tons! You can afford to buy a house.  There are four seasons but not so cold( actually it's only really cold for 4 months).  No mosquitos and No cockroaches!! ( In Hawaii, there are TONS!!). There are mountains to hike and the summers are warm ( gets super hot sometimes), but I prefer the heat better than the cold, any day.  Plus, you can travel anywhere by car, train,plane, whatever you so desire.  What about gambling?  Stay with a limit when you go in and walk out when your done but the best place is Primm, a lottery, you never know if your the lucky one today, so instead of giving all that TAX money to Hawaii's government, try your LUCK at Primm!

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.
