Not a real surprise, Austin attracts young people from California and many parts of Texas, but it's not attractive for retired...They prefer Miami and Honolulu, these cities are famous for that But that doesn't mean these cities are over and from the past..Miami is clearly one of the youngest city in the US about attitudes and culture
Houston, Dallas and Atlanta are very impressive too

I don't mean to sound rude or offend anyone, but Tampa literally feels like the oldest city I have been too. And for some reason Philadelphia somewhat does in quite a few areas too.
Again no offense to anyone.
They're both cool cities though. Tampa has a beast location on the Bay.

I thought this was going to be about places like Santa Fe, New Mexico or St. Augustine, Florida even if that seemed too obvious.

Personally I like older people. They provide a connection to the past, but also a link to our future. I mean most of us will be old people someday so why not embrace the old? Also they don't commit that much crime and have figured themselves as much as they ever will. So it's sometimes easier to determine which ones are truly jerks and which ones are basically good. Pennsylvania is starting to sound appealing to me as it's cooler than Florida, but has lots of old people.

Granted that sounded a bit condescending, but I really do tend to like older people. I'm already missing my lecture series at the retirement home.
