I've already lived in NV...it's a nice place to live, if you don't mind the desert. The good thing is that there likely never will be a state income tax (the casinos pay the tax so Nevadans don't have to).

I wouldn't mind giving Houston a try.

Maybe Wyoming. It's absolutely beautiful there.


(The Seattle metro would be a good pick too, although it's not quite right for me.)

No such thing as a free lunch.

They will get your money some other way.

In TN, they get it through business and sales tax.

I don't mind the sales tax, rather have it that way, but the business taxes just puts more obstacles in the way of attracting businesses here, hence less good jobs as compared to other states. Just one small reason of course, we do have many good jobs here but I really feel we can attract many more.

But in place of that some local communities are giving some hefty incentives for businesses to locate here, property tax being a big one.

TN and WA would be at the top of my list.

(Note to K350: Be careful what you wish for; TN is a BEAUTIFUL state; don't over-develop it so it becomes just another Sea-Tac (Seattle-Tacoma) megalopolis...)

I live in Florida now, I would like a change of scenery so I think New Hampshire or Washington would be my next choices.

Public schools are very poor here, so I wouldn't send my child to school here.

You don't know how right you are. The article below at msn says that 18 months ago the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce was fielding 80-100 inquiries per month from people interesting in retiring there. Now it's answering 1200-1400 inquiries per month.

The article also mentions Asheville NC, Austin TX, and western Mass as popular retirement areas.
