What it's Like to Retire in Florence

Florence is a suburb south of Cincinatti with a population of about 30,000. It is somewhat famous for the "Florence Y'all" emblazoned water tower that is visible from I 75. (Photo above courtesy of Wikipedia and C. Matthew Curtin). The sign originally advertised the "Florence Mall", but when the sign was found to violate local signage regulations, a little paint made the conversion. The city is home to the Florence Freedom independent minor league baseball team, who play at Champion Window Field in Florence.
