  1. You failed to mention the largest retirement community outside the United States with one of the best climates in the world. And with a lifestyle and cost of living unmatched in the US. Chapala, Mexico. See you there soon?

  2. Now I’m totally confused. This latest article from AARP on the 10 best/worst by Money-Rate almost seems like the lists are turned around with NC, SC & TN dropping out of favor. Is there really any place that’s the best? I do like the concept of “toy” friendly, and 3 car garages. What I don’t like about most communities is all the rules.
