Harv wrote a wonderful Blog Comment last year about all the reasons he chose a Tucson retirement. Recently there has been a spate of Comments made on other posts  about Arizona, so we decided to re-issue Harv's post - now including a collection of other insights about the Grand Canyon State.
We only recently learned about this charming little town in extreme southwestern NC (you have to see it on map to believe where it is).  It came to fame with golf legend Bobby Jones arrived with some buddies to start a golf course. Our friends loved it!
