June 3.  Welcome, to this week's newsletter. 

The website Livability.com just named Lebanon the most livable small town in America. That's quite an accomplishment for a place not in the Sunbelt. Its location on the Connecticut River near Dartmouth College is one, but not the only charm of the place.

For years the 4% rule has been the gold standard for how much you can safely take out of your retirement savings every year.  But in this chaotic financial world, it might not always prevent the worst casescenario (running out of money). So now, make room for some rival theories.

If you are looking for an interesting, off-beat place to retire, Bisbee, in extreme southern Arizona might be the place. Famous for its copper, sliver, and gold mines, native Americans found plenty of turquoise here. 

It is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, but not without growing pains. Its expansion in at least one active adult community is causing problems.
We see enough comments from our Members and visitors to realize that many of you have very specific wants when it comes to finding your best place to retire.  Using our Advanced Search feature you can find places in each state that offerspecific amenities, types of housing, community size, winter/summer temps, etc. Try it, you might be pleasantly surprised.
Forward this to a friend.   If you have friends thinking about retirement, please forward them this newsletter. They can get their own subscription to this free weekly "Best Places" newsletter, the Daily Digest, and the East and West New Community newsletters by going to our Newsletter sign up page.
