March 18.  Welcome, to this week's newsletter. 

If you have every dreamed of retiring in California's beautiful wine country, Solvang could fit the  bill. This lovely town, the setting for parts of the movie "Sideways", was  established by Danish settlers. 

Several single members have asked us to encourage others in that situation to share where they intend to retire, and why. So here goes, please let us know your thoughts, plans, and experiences. When it comes to retirement, it is not that easy being single.

You can check off several boxes if you choose to live in Peachtree City.   Golf carts are the preferred transportation method, it is a very large planned community with 5 neighborhoods , and people of all ages love living here. 

A recent survey of retirement preparation and financial literacy produced an average score of 20%, and no one got an A. So we have prepared our own little (easier) 11 point quiz to let you find out for yourself - just how prepared are you? Warning: in the survey mentioned, most folks thought they had done a good job!
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.
