Consider Vancouver, WA. Reasonably close to the grandchildren, a number of synagogues in the area, medical, shopping, airport close.

Next time you are visiting Seattle, you can try one of these. All have 4.5 stars.

Roxy's Diner
4.3
(546) $ Diner
462 N 36th St

"Roxy's is the best East Coast Jewish Deli-style dinner I have been to..."

Market House Meats
4.7
(173) $ Butcher shop deli
1124 Howell St

"My mom is Jewish and from Chicago and therefore has ..."

Dingfelder's Delicatessen
4.4
(169) $$ Jewish
1318 E Pine St

"It's nice having a Jewish deli in Seattle because I've been exposed..."

Here is the link I used to find these:

Do people actually believe a person would be happier in Florida or New York because there might be more conservative synagogues and more delis?



People have different priorities. Jewish or Gentile. Conservative or Liberal.



Some grandparents do not want to see their grandchildren every day - or every week. They are content to see them a couple of times a year.



All families are not alike.

That's a great idea. And they would be just over the bridge from Portland, Oregon for shopping, etc.

People never think about Charleston, South Carolina.

It's one of the best cities in the US, amazing arts, culture, food, shopping, dining, schools, etc.

It has the largest population of Jews in the South. It used to have the largest population of Jews in the US at one time.

Honestly, Boca is a [expletive deleted]. I used to work there and hated it.

OP here:

No, need the Jewish deli and a Dr Browns cream soda a couple of times a week!!!
I am hybrid Jew - politically very conservative, wear cowboy hat, ex-cop, have guns, have truck, have a rottweiler dog. Left Seattle for Boise, IDAHO because I couldn't take the socialist state any longer!

Wife is retiring and looking for a home. Can take a plane to see the 6 grandchildren in the wetlands.

Maybe the homeless in California will move there. Cheaper and better meat. Ok, I kid.
