I'm here planning retirement. I haven't worked since I was 37 Years old and what was 15 years ago. So my kids are in college and hopefully on with their lives. I'm in the USA and have been shopping for good lcoations to retire. Considerations are cost of living, weather, thinsg to do. I have looked at Arizona, Nevada, Florida and now find myself looking further. I was thinking to get the best of all worlds maybe going to different places at the best time of the year would work. So it leads me to questions that can only be answered by people who live there. Example: Netherlands - Whats a good area with a nice weather season and things do do..but at what cost factor? Nevada same?? California maybe.. Florida maybe... I plan to train to these area's to check out the issues that are realted to the above. But going as a tourist just doesn't cut it.
