We had a terrific member suggestion this week: why not put all of the links and references in one place for researching what it is like to retire in any given town. In response we've assembled links for categories like housing prices, taxes, weather, crime, walkability, etc. in this handy article. We are hoping you will make this list even better by adding your best retirement sources in the Comments section.
