Bahaha if the OP is female, you've probably scared her away for good!

I don't have friends or family to speak of so I am truly lost.
I vote for Moore. Amarillo is one of the last places that I would want to live. The wind is unbearable, and it is one of the coldest places that I have ever been.

Phoenix, I can't handle the photo radar on the expressways......guess I'm not that ready for big brother.


Amarillo is a nice city, pretty flat (its on the Llano Estacado and was the "fortress" area for the Comanche nation), home of the quarter horse association, good beef, decent traffic.......and located dead center of fishing country.......go 800 miles in any direction and you will find a lake. (just kidding)


New England.........good choice. Four distinct seasons, good seafood, good cash for your house......you'll have to finance the taxes...........

I think that during the recent months, the city of Phoenix finally removed those pesky cameras. I also hate "big brother" monitoring my every move.


Ouch on the New England high taxes. Sounds like Tulsa County.


In Amarillo, let's not forget the (free) 72 ounce steak? A senior citizen would only have to dine once per week.... a real cost savings on the food bill.


I have to wonder what prompted the OP to consider these three places and if he prefers the big city over smaller communities. Perhaps he should take an extended (driving) vacation to explore. Within Oklahoma, Bartlesville is a friendly (and smaller city) community with lots of support for seniors plus it's only a 45 minute drive to Tulsa for the big things.

My wife and I have considered moving away after retirement to a climate that is less humid. We've looked at Silver City, New Mexico and Sierra Vista, Arizona. Of course each person has their own needs and wants. The OP is certainly welcome in Oklahoma and I think that Phoenix is overrated as a retirement haven.

So many places to go and decisions to make.
