Las Cruces, NM...great retirement town. Less than 100,000 people...yet still very close to a big city (El Paso) and not too far from Albuquerque (180 miles or so).

Much, much more mild (in my opinion a far nicer) climate than most of those suggested thus far, however, still four distinct seasons and not the harsh summer heat of places like Tucson or Phoenix, AZ.

A relatively clean, newer feeling town. Relatively safe, and 300+ days of sunshine a year!

Lower cost of living than the snowy towns of Colorado mentioned, too!

Great retirement town.

New Mexico is one place I was considering. I have been there in the past but it's been a few years. I'll need to go check it out. Carlson City,Nevada would worth a look as well.
There's no easy way to do it. I'm going to have to do some traveling.
I would like a mild climate so southern New Mexico is a place I am thinking about.

Las Vegas, NV-- why not live somewhere that's fun? At the locals casinos in the suburbs like the Suncoast there is nobody but older people plugged in the slot machines all day. You can get on their player's clubs and make it a whole lifestyle-- getting free buffets every day.

Santa Fe is BEAUTIFUL. But can get a bit cold in the winter. Socorro, and Truth or Consquences are smaller western style towns. Socorro also has NMIT adding a college influence. IMO you do not want to retire to southern NM though...
