We're retired, and live in our CCRC.... Liberty village, Peru, Il.  

Cape Cod... we loved it... Falmouth and also Martha's Vineyard. "1720 House"... rented @ $90Mo. in 1962.   Now rents for $8400/wk in August

All on the water are getting more expensive. 

We also lived near the water in Maine... Look up Mere Point... 

Freshwater?

We still have a place in Woodhaven Lakes... right on the water.  Selling this year.

And, look at Lake Cobbeseconte, Maine, but Maine has winters.

That's one of my top picks as well.  A beautiful and historic town.

Oklahoma because I was born there and it feels like home.

It's affordable, has plenty of room, lots of things to do, most people there are nice, good churches and Christian people that I can relate to

Since my wife dies last year[tombird is now just tom] I do not have a support system. I have been getting used to being a single 80 year old man. I am working at it though by joining organizations and discussion groups. My family is scattered back East in Michigan,Ohio,Illinois,North Carolina so there is no place I could move to to be near family. Besides I like it here in San Diego. My health is good but if/when it fails I will check into a home.

Will you be fine where you are if in your late 70s and 80s and 90s and ALL that goes with it? Or you just wait and see what happens?

I hope you built a family support system while in SD.

South Dakota. We moved here from a large urban city back east almost 10 years ago and whereas the climate leaves much to be desired most of the year, we think the quality of life is unmatched in the US.

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.
