Traverse City, Michigan, has a vibrant society of middle-aged people involved in many activities, and a lot of social overlap of older and younger demographics, who are very tolerant of each other. But again, it is severely affected by the job-poor Michigan economy.

If you don't mind a lot of clouds and rain consider Olympia, WA or Bellingham, WA. The COL isn't very low but not very high either. And you can't beat the scenery and natural setting. Note that the rain isn't downpours like on the East Coast, more like a drizzle and you're rewarded with a sunny summer without humidity.

Default startingalloveragain

Hello friends! Haven't checked in for quite awhile. Many thanks for all the thoughtful replies. Just an update for all who care...I am a 56 yo female, aging but relatively attractive, but aging nontheless.I starting dating a man 8 years my junior and have learned that, 1) bad idea to date a younger man, and 2) I probably don't want to date at all anymore.

I am a lowly nurse, but if I live carefully, I can live within my means. Don't need a man for livelyhood. Would be nice to have company, but not counting on it at my age. Anyway, I recently reconnected with a very dear friend from High School. I am actually considering moving back to South Jersey. I know its crowded, and the Real Estate taxes are absurd. I will probably rent an apartment within an hour of the shore. Will work full-time as an RN and just live out the rest of my life in relative calm. SO-O-O ....any ideas?? Anyone living in South Jersey and loving it??? Give me feedback, people!!!

Before you go, take a look at Crooked River Ranch, Oregon. Spectacular scenery, every outdoor activity you could ever dream of, cool dry sunny weather.

Lots of friendly, active, retirees. HOA has a gorgeous huge swimming pool and a golf course. There are lots of clubs, activities and volunteer work to keep you busy.

A highly rated hospital in Redmond, so jobs without too much of a commute.

Easy drive into Bend, OR which has something happening all the time and excellent shopping. But real estate is much cheaper in Crooked River Ranch, the scenery is fabulous from almost every house, and the pace of life is slower.

Consider the Phoenix/Scottsdale Metro. Could be a good fit as there seems to be a lot of older divorcees etc. that move here

If you want low cost think about Sun City, Az. Low taxes, inexpensive condos, lots of things to do in SC and within 10 minutes of it, almost everything to do within 1/2 hour. Friendly people from all over the country and all over the world.
