Florida is obviously the most well-known retiree state, but because of that, it is hard to believe that there are any natives. I live in New Jersey and many people and even young people move out of here, because they are tired of the cold. I have relatives (old people) who live in Florida with a decent amount of land (backyard space, etc.) and I think it is because of the hot weather and cost of living is cheaper over there.

I live in New Jersey and I go to college here, and I heard two of my professors say they were born, grown up, and lived here their entire lives, which frustrates me, because the east coast climate sucks and I would never want to live here for the rest of my life (dealing with extreme season changes, snow, and humidity). Most people in my town grew up here as well and even retirees (native to NJ only) continue to live here. There are a lot of retirees out here and surprisingly, they do drive pretty modern cars, which old people do need, because some need faster braking, and some have trouble feeling their feet, because of neuropathy. The old people out here actually drive pretty well, while there are only a few that can drive slow.

California seems to have mixture of both natives and new people, because everyone wants to live in that overrated state. People move to either Florida or California when they leave their parents' house to get away from the bad climate they lived in.

Your references to "old people" sound like they're from someone, who doesn't realize that someday, they, too, will be one of those "old people". Brace yourself. Also, my hope is that you, too, can have a "modern" car, when you're old, as opposed to.....????, maybe a Model T??

Where do you think the 225K born in Florida annually wind up?

I forgot to write in this post that many of the CURRENT old people only, not the young generation, or generation before the young generation, can afford decent cars and sports cars. Here in NJ, if the weather is nice, I see old people driving convertibles and they don't drive like crazy like most convertible or sports car drivers. I barely see anyone in my parents' generation with a sports car or a convertible. Things are too expensive these days and our parents generation struggles with money and mine do too even though we're like upper middle class. The young generation would struggle too depending on if they buy a big house and/or having to pay expenses of raising children. So I would not assume I can afford a brand new car easily when I age and get old.

Northern NJ near NYC is full of transplants.
A lot of people that move to NYC & get priced out but still want to stay in the NYC move to NJ for a lower COL, and it's been happening a lot more lately. Hoboken and Jersey city are booming right now.

The other parts of NJ don't have much transplants at all though. South Jersey is filled with people from Philly but that's literally the border, so that doesn't count. Although technically they are not natives to the State still.

I think I read one time that North Dakota had the most native residents (per capita).

North Dakota is so boring and when you retire, you will be so bored. My grandmother is bored at home, because she is retired, but actually, she goes shopping around different parts of North Jersey every day and she wants a part time job and community service (She loves helping the community) to keep her occupied. North Dakota is an empty state and there isn't great shopping like New Jersey. New Jersey is great for retirees. I can't believe someone regardless of age would want to live in North Dakota.
