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 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.

I'm also leaning toward Los Angeles, but I don't have an acceptable, practical reason.  I lived in San Diego for two years.  I couldn't afford living there even while working a part time job while also working a full time job, but I felt like I belonged there.  I haven't lived in Los Angeles, but until recently I visited a couple of times a year and had the same feelings.  I'd like those feelings to be permanent for the last few years of my life.

We were thinking about retiring in or about Clinton Missouri. 

 

We cuttently live live in Illinois and are trying to wait patiently to get out of this state. 

 

Is Missouri a pension friendly state? 

 

Thank you,

When I retire, either early or later, I would like to move to Montana. I lived there before, for 3 years and I loved it. I've been an over-the-road truck driver and driven through all 48 states. I've seen so many beautiful areas, but I believe Montana has the best. 

I'll be turning 60 in 3.5 days(12/08) and looking forward to it.

Planning on moving to the Philippines in January because of the low cost. It's hot, no snow ever. On my small social security check and 401K it may be the pefect solution. Entertainment will consist of beaches, jet skiing, walking around and observing the people in different cities and towns. Of course the larger cites have movies, huge malls, cheap massages, etc. The healthcare is cheap but the best is found in private hospitals. Dental is extremely cheap. Anyway if the fun fizzles in a few years Thailand and Malaysia are nearby.

Been there, done that. They don't like US there. You may find it difficult in the cities. Traffic is so bad, it took 2 hours to go 2 miles. Extreme poverty alongside wealth, and a LOT of crime. No snow, but the typhoons will get you. Must like bugs, snakes, rats.

I’ve always wanted to live  in Washington State as my hearts always been there since I was little . My hubby and I are both born and raised in SoCal, but I can’t stand how expensive it is and how hot it’s gotten. Doesn’t look like it’s even in the cards however, as  the hubs and fam are alL planted here with no intention of leaving. I honestly don’t know how we’ll ever afford to retire here when the time comes.

I'm 66, planning on retiring at 68. I'll have at least $60,000/year in retirement income, unitl the day I die. My passion is the American Southwest, where I plan to move, from Illinois. Tentatively, Cortez, CO appeals to me, with Mesa Verde National Park, Canyons of the Ancients and more, in the vicinity. 

 

I'm a fairly accomplished photographer, particularly with landscapes. I plan on hiking and shooting most every day, weather accommodating. Some days, I may shoot people and cut-off their heads.

 

I hope their is a community, or two, in the area there, that I can join. There's always the American Legion. But, I need more.

 

Before I commit to a place, I will spend some time in more than one location in the region. It may be that I end up near my children, wherever one of them land, 2 currently in Boston and one near Peoria.CliffPalace.jpg

Yes, the area around Cortez is lovely, as a desert SW landscape. I was a BLM ranger at Mesa Verde and lived in Durango. The problem is water, or the lack of it. You must be sure you have an adequate supply for whatever dwelling, as many communities are now restricting water hauling and new wells are expensive as well as possibly not allowed. There has been a severe drought in the area for several years. Weather can be either too hot or too cold. The people are not quite as friendly as in Durango area. Cost of living is fairly low, but so is the income. The Ute Mtn Ute reservation is just south, with a casino, and there are lots of tourists, year around. Very small airport, and limited health care. Durango, again, is closest for real amenities. If you really want the experience, then several CO towns would be great, including Pueblo and Trinidad. Farmington, NM is also a choice.

Anywhere on the beach along the Gulf Coast. Even with hurricanes it would be a great place to live there again. Live in North Texas now. We are in Tornado Alley. My house has been hit 3 times so there would be much difference.
