RETIREMENT SPOTS FOR SPECIAL INTERESTS

Abundant Choices for Retirement

An AARP article recently caught our eye.  We started to think about all the choices seniors have now when they choose to retire, or choose to move during retirement.  The AARP article focused on retirement locales for people who love the out of doors.  Here are the ten top places to consider if you are an outdoor lover:



Then we took a look at other special interest options for senior living in retirement.

Many Options on Internet for Senior Retirement Living

Seniors looking for retirement centers and assisted living facilities will find good resources at SeniorLiving.com. This site offers searches for senior living facilities by state, zip code and city. If you are preparing a list of options, this is a good place to start.

A search for ‘best places to retire leads one to a site that offers information about cities, including reports about city government, community services offered, size, cost of living and other information important to seniors when they are looking for places to retire.  This site is an equally good place to start a list of possibilities.

If affordability is your top priority, you will want to take a look at these suggestions.  If you are looking for a small town, this site offers a list of options within each state.  Big-city retirees will want to check out this list for retirement possibilities.

If you want to create your own list of Internet websites that offer information about your preferred retirement locale, enter the appropriate phrase in your favorite search engine and you will be offered more choices than you can imagine.  A phrase such as ‘best medium-size cities to retire’ will bring up over 39million website to look at.  A little daunting, but you get the idea.  You can look at the first few pages of results to choose sites to examine for the information you need.

Happy retirement city hunting!
