Jan Cullinane pitched a great idea to us - interview 6 retirement experts and find out how they planned for retirement. In this article we summarize the trends and lessons learned from their reports. (Today's other featured article provides their detailed answers to questions 1 and 2 in that survey).

Florida has a number of interesting planned developments, and this one in northeastern Florida is one of them. Palm Coast was planned originally by ITT in 1969 as a huge development that included businesses, commercial, and residential elements. Another of today's experts lives here full-time.
