      I love it here in Austin, however, property taxes are very high. Real estate prices are soaring as the town becomes more infiltrated by Californians and New Yorkers, many buying second homes. This is not an inexpensive city full of retirees. It’s very much a young person’s town.

        Middle class Republicans are leaving Our State of California not because we don’t love the land or our homes. It’s the vile political environment we are living under that we just can’t take any longer. We feel like every Liberal Democrat Rainbow pro immigration Nut in the rest of the United States have moved here and taken over plus those that have poured through our boarders make it very uncomfortable read that as dangerous to stay in California.
        Please welcome those of us who can leave. We are looking for asylum.

          Trumpster, give us a break. Your leaving because you are a hateful human being same as Trump. You only want white folks around you plus you probably hate gays. If you move, make it out o f this country !! You Republicans are becoming intolerable.

            Rod, you sound pretty intolerable (and intolerant) yourself. You paint all Republicans with a very broad stroke, when, in fact, there is a lot of diversity within the Republican Party — diversity of thought, ethnicity, color, religion, and sexual identity. Open your mind.

            Please, give me a break , what do you mean diversity within the GOP- when Trump shows up with the Senate Majority, along with his Administration , all you see is Snow White , no people of color, just a bunch of white lies. What are you looking at where there is diversity, please tell me so I can see the same thing as you. Trumps Administration is all white. SAD

          It’s not the Liberals, it’s the corrupt Republicans who are destoring not only California, but the entire USA. You see what’s going on in America and you blame liberals , look who’s in power , the GOP- you have your facts wrong- so go ahead and leave Ca, it’s better off without blind people like you who run away from the real issues and those who are bringing America down

            Not crying, just stating facts. If Obama was being blamed for what Trump, white America would be ready to hang him. Somebody needs to cry out loud with what people are getting away with these days, so you go ahead and keep quiet dude- you don’t have a clue, so F- – -, off

    It’s a nice town to visit but I wouldn’t retire there. Had a friend who did and after three years she was over it.

    Wilmington North Carolina. Has the beach, college town, good restaurants, housing prices are not outrageous, good stores for shopping . Plenty of activities eg, fishing , golf , boating , pickle ball, Mahjong and more. The town has an historical side and a new fine arts facility.

      I agree with you! I was in Wilmington the first week of July 2018 and enjoyed every place my friends and I have visited. Love the North Carilina Museum of Art the most and the resto… Great place to visit and perhaps to retire:)! Thanks for sharing your Wilmington experience.

    An incomplete picture without a cost of living index for people on a fixed income.
    So easy to incorporate from other sources and could be just one number too.

    Palm Springs…..seriously? We live just east of Palm Springs and can’t wait to get out of the area. I was born and raised in California and so sad to see how it’s gone down hill. Way over priced and everything is expensive. You have to be rolling in dough to live here. Plus the summer heat is horrible. Summer meaning over well 100 degrees June through September. And no,dry heat is not more tolerable once the temp is near or over 100. Palm Springs must have paid to get on this list.

    I’m not intending to retire to the USA as I have already retired to Norfolk in England, but it makes for an interesting ‘what if?’. 🙂
    Thanks for following my blog, which is appreciated.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Prescott does not have normal food supply. No haibut, no Veal, no fresh vegetables, no felit. Most of the restaurants have a very limited variety of food. Chicken is often missing from the meat counter and chicken breasts are almost never available. A train track runs next to Prescott but there is no train station. The airport is small and friendly but there is no commercial flight.
    It freezes almost every night for 5 months and 5 months it is 95 to 106 degrees, The rest of the time the wind blows. No one here is excited about being alive. Most people are missing teeth and the dentists here have an incredible inability to make a decent tooth. Doctors are stupid here, and it takes 6 to 8 months to see one. I am sorry I left Malibu even thou it was taken over by illegals.

    Venice is primed for water loving retirement. White sand beaches and shark tooth diving, fresh water and salt water.

    Saint Augustine is a great town by the Atlantic Ocean. However we have been getting so many rave reviews by newspapers and magazines that so many people have moved here that it is getting crowed.

    Georgetown Texas is a well kept secret. Beautiful town square that has something happening all the time Awesome library That just won national award Yes the summers are hot It is Texas after all but the weather reward is the mild winters. The only thing I miss about New England is the fall. But springtime innGeorgetown is awesome

    Asheville, NC looks like a keeper as well. Just visited for a week and not ready to retire but I see why a major magazine voted it #1 place to retire. Temperate weather, great food scene, good healthcare, the Biltmore and incredible natural beauty in every direction.

    Smaller towns seem natural for retirement, if well managed. Surprised to see some of the slightly bigger towns like Salt Lake City and Austin in the list. But I guess only academic for me since I live on the other side of the world. 🙂

    Having lived all over the country and the world I chose Beaufort, SC as a place to retire. Beaufort county is the most diverse county in the State and that is part of what makes it so special. It’s racial makeup is: White-68%, Black-19% (including many Gullah descendants of slaves), Latino-11%. The area has a rich history with the city of Beaufort (establish 1711) being the county seat. Charlesfort (France-1562) and Santa Elena (Spain-1566), at the east end of what is now Parris Island (where they make Marines) were established before Jamestown. During the Civil War the Union Army used Beaufort as a Medical Center and Sherman made his final push north from Savannah and Beaufort.

    Beaufort today has built on its history to provide a modern environment in an antebellum with a small town atmosphere. Located on the Intercoastal Waterway, it provides easy access to the calm Lowcountry rivers as well as the ocean. A short distance away are the planned oceanfront developments of Fripp Island and Hilton Head Island and the wonderful Hunting Island State Park. This is a very friendly and welcoming town and a great place to live.
