North Carolina because life is good. We are transplants and some of life is good is geographic much is just life. NEG, seven years and the reasons for transplanting are behind us and other than weather hard to quantify. Taxes are now meaningless and there are two coasts with oceans. We love both of our places. Consider your situation. The twins are your joy and much of your happiness is where they are and that happiness would be most places.

Texas. We did move out to location further from cities once retired. We both have lived in other states and visited most. But the fact is it just suits us best. ;so why move when perfectly happy.

staying put is a good move bek as you age friends become more important and family less.
if you move away they will be dead when you come back.

I realized immediately that my title to the thread was incorrect, happing instead of happy. How do I find a moderator to change this?

I've been retired for 10 years and live in the same house I grew up in. I own my house, property taxes are reasonable, there are services such as public transportation, plenty of shopping centers in the area and the weather is quite decent. I've seen enough of the world, Asia, Europe and USA and prefer my area of California to anywhere else I've been. I can ride my motorcycle pretty much year round with plenty of nice destinations within a 100 mile radius. San Francisco to the West 100 miles, Lake Tahoe to the East 100 miles and nothing worth mentioning within a reasonable distance to the North or South. Enjoy your retirement wherever you go.

A client and her husband, both professionals, moved from Texas to West Lafayette Ind and from all reports, they really like it there. They are from the Northeast.
