To our many new subscribers who found us from Yahoo and MarketWatch - Welcome!
Our intention in writing our recent story on the "10 Worst Retirement States
" was to get people thinking. We think we succeeded on that one; there's been no shortage of controversy and interesting comments!
In our November reader survey the proposed article about retirement bucket lists generated a lot of interest. The title comes from the movie, "The Bucket List", where 2 characters with only a year left to live try to check off their list. In this article we have some ideas on how to start yours, provide a peek at our list from 2006, and give you links to more. These lists are a great idea; we urge you to work on yours.

The red rocks of Sedona are world-famous. Located north of Phoenix and closer to Flagstaff, this popular resort is also home to many happy retirees. They come for the dry weather, the hiking, the golf, the arts, but mostly for the magical beauty of the area.

Vero Beach, FL
Vero Beach has a laid back charm that appeals to many people, including your editor. It is far enough from the hectic Miami area, yet still warm enough for people who want to escape the cold. Its endless white sand beaches are fabulous. You can live on the barrier islands or along the intracoastal, or even further inland. It has some of the nicest active communities anywhere. On the negative side, it was hit hard by Hurricane Frances in 2004.
