Where do you want to live for the next 10, 20, or 30 years? I’ll be honest that, other than the occasional daydream of living in a bright cottage near the ocean, I really didn’t start to think about where I’d like to spend my retirement years until quite recently. Now that finding the ideal place to nest through my grey-haired years is on my mind, I find that the start of this retirement location search is all consuming.
We all have an image of our perfect retirement town. When I close my eyes and allow my thoughts to drift my ideal place feels like Andy Griffith’s hometown. I long to live in a place that’s small enough that I know everyone in my neighborhood and our lives intersect on a regular basis.
Here are the things that I want in a retirement location
Art- galleries, classes, working artists
Walk to everything
Sense of history
Access to fly fishing
What do you think about the items on my search list? Does this place exist? If so, is it affordable? Join me as I look for my own private utopia.
