I have, I was reading somewhere that there are patches of land in SoCal that are still owned by the folks who bought for cheap 125 years ago. Imagine what an Orange Grove bought for $500 in 1880 is worth today in OC or LA? LOL


Thanks for the advice everyone, my parents are gonna check out Knoxville, Nashville and Greenville

They are looking for a place that's no more than 3 hours plane ride from PGH, state wih solidly conservative politics, doesn't get too hot in the summer (stays lower than 90) with low humidity (very important) and lots of retirees. They want to be in a semi urban area, going from the middle of the city to some semi rural place will be too much for them.


Ideas?

Ideal place except for the humidity in mid summer. "Charleston, S. C."
Small city with the Medical University of S. C. and a VA Hospital next to it downtown.
Semi urban area, 7 miles out near Roper Hospital and lots of retirees and doctor offices.
