Why is it seemingly always assumed that retirees want HEAT?
Eight of your ten are in the South/Southeast with unbearable heat and humidity. Five of those picks are in Florida where the state bird is the mosquito.
The two remaining are in drier Arizona but the summers are hotter than a tin lizard!
If your criteria were true, there would be nobody older than 60 anywhere North of Amarillo.
so most of the people in this top ten list LIKE serious 95% humidity? or they stay inside and run the AC all day so it really doesn't matter WHERE they live?
or did these cities pay the right fee for a listing?
hurricane city really isn't for me. i'll stay west. more to do than just sit in sweat
oh yeah - MSN is new york city based. the center of the universe. and like Sinefield said "my parents retired and moved to florida because that's the law".
heaven forbid anyone move west!
This list assumes that everyone who retires is enamoured with hot weather. How about some places for those of us who don't like being steamed or baked?
Main reason to NOT retire in Florida? Everyone else will. I hate crowds.. I understand the criteria for choosing 5 of 10 Florida spots; but when I think Florida, I think hot, humid, sweaty and itchy. Ugh! BTW, I am retired, living in #10 Prescott AZ. Great, except for the heat in July and August.
Nights and mornings are still cool, even in those two months. Sales tax? Except for gasoline and food, I purchase everything over the net, trying to stay away from big chains that have storefronts in AZ., so as to avoid sales tax.
Kind of sad that Prescott made this list; because now more crowds will come to live here.
OH! wait. I just checked. we're full. Try Naples FL., I hear they have lots of openings.
A lot of Florida haters. Well that is not me , I love Florida-the beautiful white sandy beaches I miss so much. Snow is not my thing and if I get the chance to go to Florida again, I'm staying.
the truth seems to offend a few after they read my comment,
i have been offended all my life by the same who are offended by my comment,
i've had the retirees living the lifestyle i could only wish for all their lives crying and complaining about how my sorry @$$ is too expensive for them and even asked if i could do a favor for and do my electrical work for nothing because she was living on a budget,
but where she was living was in a gatted community, she had a fully enclosed pool in the backyard, luxury cars in the driveway and in the garage,
the furnishings in the home were more than anything i could ever afford,while i could only afford to live in the middle of crack town,
she wanted me to do work for her as a favor and she was from this $#!Thole of Massachusetts, i know because the whole time i was doing the work that she originally called for she was telling me all about this toilet and supposedly how hard living here is supposed to be, then i moved here and found out the truth and that it's all been nothing but a bunch of lies, with the way it's been everyone i have ever met that has been from here, they all made it believable until i came and saw that they aren't as hardy as they all have claimed to be
