Moving Into Retirement
As retirement nears, many people make lists of possible places to spend their golden years. Some even look outside the country to take advantage of the currency exchange and other benefits, although that presents challenges. These U.S. locales have gotten buzz on retirement-focused blogs and forum postings but little attention as top destinations for retirees. Cheapism compared indicators such as cost of living, median home prices, and health care costs and availability in these places against the national averages, as reported by Sperling's Best Places, to come up with destinations that deserve a closer look.
