Fifteen miles west of St. Augustine and you're in the middle of potato farms. Twenty five miles and you're on the other side of the St. Johns River (in another county). Why would you be looking in this area? Robyn

Nope, still in Virginia and will be for at least another year, maybe even two. We're not completely sure where we're going yet--St. Augustine is a top contender right now but so is Delaware and maybe a few other choices too.

how much cheaper do you think Delaware is than NoVa? I so want to retire to Virginia (maybe Fredricksburg area) but I hear you say it is just too expensive for the average retiree.

The DC Metro area general affordability is rather high.
Fredericksburg is on the edge of that but still close enough to feel it.

So unless you're comparing those expenses to NYC or CA (San Diego?)...
almost any other area of the US will cost less.

You could also find something more affordable out by Winchester or Front Royal.
