How about the San Diego area? Other than the "Sun Shine Tax" we all have to content with, it is a beautiful place to live.

On second thought... Don't come here!!!!! There are already too many of us here now.

San Diego is an absolutely beautiful place! If it wasn't in California that would be awesome! Lol

almost any big city has the problems the op described. Find a nice spot maybe 20 or 30 mi from the city and enjoy the benefits of rural and city.

Been to every State, in USA and Province in Canada. As well as a few other locations around the world. Found many beautiful spots in most of them as well as interesting people and enjoyable animals. Enjoyed NYC and Virginia City and they are about as opposite as you can find!(except they both use the word City) The place I wanted to stay the most was the three parts of the world where the Grandkids reside! What a beautiful spot that was!

When I retired in 2005, we packed up and moved to Maui. I always thought I could just spend the rest of my life there with no problem at all. Then our two grandbabies were born one right after the other and I quickly learned that, unless I wanted to be sitting on that beach alone, I was going to have to be closer to the new babies in Arizona.

We came back to California, sold the stick house, bought a new 40DP and hit the road full time... passing through Arizona every few months or flying the DW there if we were a long ways away. We spent the better part of four years touring and keeping an eye out for that perfect retirement place.

A year ago, while visiting the kids in Az, we took a quick look at housing and closed escrow on our new place three weeks later.

So, for us, the perfect retirement place is a small home on a golf course... 20 miles west of Phoenix. We joined the country club which is part of a major resort and spa... which includes three championship golf courses. We play golf every day and have wonderful neighbors in our HOA.

We'll be hitting the road soon because it's already getting pretty darned hot here though!
