Where would you like to retire to?

  1. We all fantasize about where we will live when we retire. Where do you want to go and live when you retire??? I hope to retire in a nice cabin next to a lake in the Smoky Mountains. That would be heaven for me.

    A nice little house on a secluded beach, preferrably in the Keys.

    Maybe Lake Tahoe? Not sure just yet. But I am moving this summer. I am making sure my new home has a bedroom and bath on the first floor. I'm thinking ahead to when I get older and won't want to do stairs. Also, how far from services will I be? Is there a grocery store nearby, how's the public transportation?

    Just thinking ahead. I'm not even close to retirement yet. But if I like Flagstaff, I may stay put there.

    St Thomas, USVI!! Woohoo! This is the third house we've owned - the others before were all ranch homes, very easily accessible. However, we currently live in a large 2-story with all bedrooms upstairs. Its certainly ok for now as hubby and I aren't too old and decrepit yet, but will need to down-size eventually!

    My husband and I would like to head back home to Maine (he was born and raised there) and buy a nice little home on one of the wonderful lakes up there!

    Here in my mountains for the summer, and would LOVE to have a small place (a shack will do!) right on the ocean somewhere for the winter months.

    RETIRE?!! Are we allowed to do that?!

    Somewhere warm, lots of water, close enough to see the kids/grandkids, but far enough away from them that they are not "checking up on me" every day.
