Question Where to live?

My husband and I are in a similar situation. We now live north of Atlanta, but want to get closer to family in Michigan, PA, and CT, but do want to stay in the south and enjoy the milder climate. We were born and raised in PA, but do not want to return to the cold, cold winters.

My husband will be retiring in Dec. We have looked in the Knoxville area, but also want to visit Lexington and try to get a feel for both regions and see where we feel most at home.

I would like to find a job tutoring (retired teacher), but my husband is hanging up his hat and wants to relax.

We have spent a couple of days at a time in both areas several times. We have enjoyed the friendly people, hospitality, and beautiful surroundings in both areas.

We have the feeling that Lexington has more to offer as far as cultural events, college-town feel and excitement, and better health-care facilities (important in your senior years). Is that a correct assumption?

We would hope to find a small piece of property in a friendly community where we could build in the $350K region.

Any suggestions and insight would really be appreciated.

thanks for your replies - the heat this summer in TN has me thinking NH!
But I agree on the growth spurt in Murfreesboro - it's wild..you won't lose a penny buying there imho...EVERYBODY is moving here..schools are good, tons of Floridians, and Rust belters coming in droves..lots from California too...good luck! As for Kentucky, it's more about the history and the quaintness I prefer...TN does NOT embrace its history..Nashville wants to be the LA of the south...VERY trendy...
