This is strictly a cultural thing. I'm from a small rural area in Virginia and you would get a crazy look if you asked someone where would you want to live when you retire.  You build your home on your property and that is where you retire is the answer. I feel so lost not having my home to live in since retirement. I don't have one now. I was renting a one-bedroom but became ill and moved in with my kids in different states as needed.  I go to a senior center during the week and most people there live with their kids or have their kids move in with them.  The only people i knew who would ask that would be military who were like vagabonds, moving around and not putting down roots.

Next 40 years?? How old are you now? I enjoyed one-bedroom living in LasV but had cancer surgery and altho I planned for a doctor and nurse to come to my apartment, my kids kidnapped me, basically, because the plan my surgeon had was not "standard of care". They moved mw out with 2 suitcases and a backpack. I miss my 6 chair, pecan dining set. . You don't make the plans for your future, You make plans for backup for what-ifs happening to you.

This would be my fantasy retirement. To me this sounds like a delightful way to spend the next 40 years.

I would love to be near a beach. But Michigan is my home, so I will retire here, and vacation at the beaches in Florida.

I will probably retire in 2020-2021 and intend to live between Colombia and central Florida. Part of the advantages of living in Colombia (my wife's home country) is that the cost of living is much less than the US and so is health insurance. We own a home in both countries so that helps a lot although rent in Colombia is very reasonable in most parts of the country.
