March 6, 2013. Welcome    to this week's newsletter. Thanks for the tremendous participation on last week's poll on housing preferences!  See below for a complete report on what we learned - there are some surprises.

Daily Digest subscribers: Please pardon the recent testing we have been doing in the Forum. There is a little bug that has required our developers to create many test Posts - thanks for your patience - we want the system to work perfectly.
Wow, talk about feedback - 753 members provided their valuable insights on their retirement status, housing preferences, and the future of active adult communities in last week's poll. Thanks! The good news - there are many different solutions for finding retirement location perfection. Read what we found out,  including many of your fascinating comments, in the full report.
Lewes, DE
Lewes is just above Rehoboth Beach on the coast. There is shopping, restaurants, and Fisherman's Wharf. Originally a whaling town, the area is now extremely popular with retirees - we have 10 different active adult communities in our Directory for Lewes.
Over at MarketWatch they have a very helpful new Retirement Section. See new articles like "Work 'T'il you're 85 and Beat Social Security", and "12 Questions to Ask Before You Retire".  Not to mention 3 articles that Topretirements helped provide the research for - "Best Places for Weather", "10 Best Places to Retire", and "15 Ways to Live Like a Cheapskate".
Yakima, Washington
What's not to like about a place with a climate referred to as "the Palm Springs of Washington"? Located in the Yakima Valley midway between Walla Walla and Seattle, this area is one of the best apple and hop growing regions in the world. Real estate prices are quite reasonable for anywhere, especially the Pacific Northwest.
