I'm in the beginning stages of planning my retirement. I currently live in Falls Church City, which is a 2.2 square miles. It still has a small town feel, though it's a little more metropolitan. Does anyone know of smal, waterfront towns I might consider retiring to?

There are many in N. Carolina. Corolla is a nice little town on the water.

Does it have to be ocean front/coastal? Or would living on a big lake work?

I know Smith Mountain Lake in SW/Central VA is pretty nice. Its a pretty affordable place to live and has a small town feel....its becoming more of a retirement destination within the last 10 years...but still a lively place. There are all kinds of activities to do in the area and I think the bass fishing tour makes a stop (if you're into that sort of thing)...

SML is pretty big so it overlaps into different cities/towns so you would have to do research on which area suits you best. Its a pretty nice area and a pretty good bang for your buck when it comes to waterfront living.

If you're looking for something in Virginia, try the eastern shore. Onancock is a beautiful little town on the bay. Cape Charles is also really nice.
