I've been living in Cincinnati metro area for 8 years. Though much has changed positively over this time it is not a place I could ever call home. I'm hoping to retire in Dec 2018 and move back to New England to be near family. The hard part is expenses. Rent alone in most places is twice what it is here and energy costs are about 20-30% higher. My first thought is Western Massachusetts or Providence RI. Anyone know anything about either or currently live there?

I plan to retire in June 2018 and am interested in the Olympic Pennisula in Washington state. I have visited Sequim and like the town.  I have friends there and in neighboring towns. What can you tell me about the area?

Have been in Ohio for the past 7 years due to my husbands job.  Our plan is to move back to my home state of Wisconsin where family is. I lived in a small town for over 50 years and moving to a big city at that age was culture shock to say the least.  Retirement for us is 3 years away, but we are looking at real estate from time to time and are finding that comparitively, where we want to move is quite a bit higher than where my husband is from in New York state.  That's the price we have to pay if we want to be by the kids.  :-(

I can't help but reply to the folks who are afraid to move to Mexico because a television show (Border Wars) shows how dangerous it is. 

 

While I would not consider moving to Mexico, myself, I would consider moving to Cabot Cove, Maine, even though Jessica Fletcher was called upon to solve a murder there nearly every week. If she didn't travel, Cabot Cove would have become a ghost town. 

 

I worked in the industry for most of my working life, and it's hard to convince people of the difference between truth and fiction. My own mother was afraid to wear a seat belt because she was convinced that cars explode on impact. I could never convince her that we packed those cars with explosives, and if she watched the screen, she would see three separate explosions, one forward, from the engine, one rear from the gas tank area, and one in the middle, passenger area because three of something is more aesthetically pleasing than two.

 

Please, people, visit a place and form your own opinions. Do not be swayed by a television show or a movie. It's likely filmed somewhere other than where it's supposed to be set, anyway.

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?

I want to live in Montgomery County, Maryland.  It is a very progressive, tolerant, open-minded area,very unlike the area I currently live.  It has an incredibly vibrant active retirement community called Leisure World.  It is also located very close to Washington, D.C., with many cultural, culinary, and entertainment options.  I am looking forward to moving here.

I have often wondered why Indiana is not promoted as a good retirement state.   We live in Ft. Wayne, a beautiful medium-size city.  We have more going on here than we can possibly do, great golf courses, top-notch philharmonic orchestra and civic theater, a poster-picture ball park, lots of lakes within an hour.  It does sometimes turn cold in the winter, but much more reasonable to live here and visit warm weather for a month!
