I grew up down south, moved to the upper midwest as an adult for a few years.
Then we moved back down, but looking to go back north soon. Wisconsin, South Dakota, or something like it.

And I love Williamsburg! I think that would be a safe bet for retirement. It's a beautiful area, people are very nice and it has all the stores one would need for every day shopping, although I wish Wegmans was close by. I also heard there are many retirees from NE and NOVA so I wouldn't have to worry about "fitting-in". Williamsburg is also great because it's not as hot as lets FL and the winters aren't harsh as NE.

If you go to Gordonsville, check out the charming town of Orange along the way.

That's right. If there's no sub-zero wind chill, it's not really winter.

Why is “North” in this discussion only including the Northeast? Midwest and PacNw?

Because that's generally considered the North when the US is the subject. How would you define North?

Post 35 used California as his North. I don't consider LA North, but I get where he's coming from... but since you list Mexico City as your location, I guess LA would definitely be "the North" for you.

I live in Richmond, which is full of people who moved here from up north, including me from Boston. I really like it here, and though we still go back to visit, we don't miss it at all and will never move back. I've literally never heard of anyone planning to move back (though there's always someone). On the other hand I hear people planning to leave Boston all the time.

I'm not sure Richmond counts in some ways, since it has really been "south" for decades. Which is why we moved here, we are still pretty culturally northeastern. Mid-atlantic is a nice fit.

TBH I think Richmond is the perfect combo of South and North. At least to me. It has the urban bones and walkability of classic Northern cities, but without the snow and cold. But it's not a retirement community like Florida or a Sunbelt city lacking a real downtown of the South, but with summer doesn't last as long or get as bad. I'm not sure whey there aren't more people moving there, but they end up in like Raleigh, Charlotte, Columbia, Florida, etc. It would feel more like home I'd think without the weather and same fast-paced lifestyle that Northerners are seeking to escape.

Why did you you move? Was it weather-related?

Well, because I'm from NE and I've been hearing lately about "many" Northeasterners moving back North, so I stared this thread about NE, simple as that. But this is open forum so anyone can chime in. Like the individual who moved to Louisville and back to CA. I enjoy reading individual's impression when one moves to a different region.
