I chose Florida and Baja Mexico, and I couldn't be more pleased with my choices!

We're leaving Phoenix due to population explosion and moving outside of Prescott.  We bought 16 acres a few years ago and are having a home built next Spring.  We plan on reducing overhead as much as possible with solar/generator power and digging a well.  Selling the house in Phoenix should give us enough to pay for the house with a small mortgage for tax purposes.  It's a major paradigm shift for us as we are both city people but we'll adjust.  I can't wait to garden, plant fruit trees, and have lots of animals.

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.
