New Blog Article


December 1, 2021 — Last week in “Slanted Best Places to Retire List” we reported on the US News list of best places to retire. The creators of that one seemed to have not realized that there are states west of the Mississippi, and many of its choices came in for strong criticism from our Members. This week we are happy to report on a better list of best places, one you can create yourself.

The NY Times just published an article with the headline, “Is Texas the New California“. Its author, a Californian, was very surprised to find that after taking a quiz designed by the newspaper, 7 of the top picks were in the Lone Star State. They found that on characteristics like more space for your money, racial diversity, and school quality, Texas had some of the highest ranking places to live in America. Although the quiz is geared towards people of all ages, it can be tailored to reflect the priorities of people in retirement. That is, in our opinion, the best thing about this quiz – it takes into account individual priorities rather than those of the authors.
