I am a 54 year old gentleman living on disability. I am planning a move to warmer weather. Being from Wisconsin the winters are taking their toll on me. I have visited Missouri a couple times and am considering moving there. I am on a fixed income of $1200 per month. Can anyone recommend a town where I could rent reasonably and not worry about crime and drugs. I am leaning towards Branson or an area I heard called Lake of the Ozarks. I would also consider a town in Northern Arkansas. I just have to make my $1200 per month budget.

Are you going to be renting where you live or buying a place? Where I am, outside of Ft. Leonard Wood, is very affordable to live.

All depends on what you like to do.

If you like city life, Shows, eating out and such try Springfield. If you like Branson area but don't like the traffic with tourist and all look at Forsyth.

If your into Hunting, Fishing and Outdoors I like Warsaw. I have a place up there but also have a place by Lebanon.

Lebanon has everything City has but on a Small Scale.
