Some cities possible--Nashville, TN--you have Vanderbilt Hospital there. Not just country music venue, lots to do, good COL, weather pretty good and friendly people.
Florida, you like or don't. Depends on the person. I'm not a fan of the state, so nothing to offer there.
NC--Winston-Salem is a moderate sized city. Retired people move there. Cute downtown. Not that much to do there, IMO, but has a good Hospital there and well-known for cancer treatment/research. Pretty, too. Moderate home prices. I think Greensboro has a Trader Joe's, 1/2 hour away.
Louisville or Lexington, KY--might check out forums and maybe others know about those areas.
I would second Louisville but its in a different size and culture class than Lexington in KY

To the OP, what is the most important factor for you? Healthcare?

Thanks everyone. Healthcare is very important tho we are for the most part, very healthy. Hope we stay that way. However, it also has to be COL. You best hospitals/ doctors in the world are meaningless if you can't afford to live there. If COL was no object we could live in NYC or Boston. But unfortunately.....


Please keep the ideas coming. Thanks again.

FWIW, we are looking at Las Cruces, NM. El Paso is less than 50 miles away.

Just curious, but do you have an idea or vision of the type of place you are looking to move to? For instance, are you looking for something like this in a warmer climate?: https://www.thisishamiltonny.com

Village Of Hamilton, NY | The Official Municipal Website for Hamilton, NY
Municipal Electric Department | Village Of Hamilton, NY

Village of Hamilton - Welcome to Hamilton New York

Events Calendar | * Hamilton Public Library**

EXPERIENCE ARTS AT THE PALACE
Home page - Hamilton Theater

About Hamilton New York - Colgate University
Events Calendar - Colgate Calendar

Or are you looking for something bigger?

Louisville is ranked as a top retirement city in so many publications. It shocks teh heck out of almost anyone who actually visits with the amount of culture and ease of living for its size.

I just thought about this, but what about a place in Delaware like Newark. Delaware has become a retirement destination for people from the Northeast. Here are some pros and cons: Delaware tops list in places to retire ranking from Kiplinger's - Delaware Business NowDelaware Business Now
