While we hope you don’t dread going to work, there is no denying that many people look forward to retirement. What better way to celebrate a life of hard work than to focus on personal projects, hobbies, and spending time with your friends and family?

Many retirees will relocate to find a location more suited to their new life of leisure and make the most of their retirement savings. According to the latest US Census bureau, over half a million adults over 65 moved states last year.

Better than not being able to afford to live when you retire.

You also get to retire in one of our poorest states with the worst healthcare in the nation

I have some friends that love Mississippi, I don’t like the humidity, so I’m heading to a warm dry climate.

West Virginia looks like a good choice. Low cost of living for Old Timers and not that oppressively hot at all.

I made more money in my Blue State than I could have in a Red State.

I still can afford to live here, and I live in a nice neighborhood surrounded by nice people.
I can live where I’m at but winters are too cold, crime and homelessness is getting bad. We are getting a Motorcoach and travel so we’ll make our home that is senior friendly then travel anyway.
