I'm quite happy where I am, but as far as retirement goes. I think I might spend a few weeks in France every year, find a nice place and when I retire, move there.

I really liked both Seattle and Boston when I went to visit them:

Retirement will be in Seward, Alaska . . . .

http://www.sewardak.org/about.htm

http://www.sewardak.org/images/misc/Seward%20map.pdf

About 120 miles south of Anchorage. Easy drive, small town, very low crime, plenty of Halibut fishing. Far enough from Anchorage to skip the BS< but close enough to make the necessary trips to town on occasion.

BOYSTOWN!!!

just kidding.

I *LOVE* Chicago and could go there and end up there for a while, but with the business I'm in, I doubt I will ever really be settling anywhere until 20 or 30 years from now. It's quite common to move every 2 to 5 years.

List of places I wouldn't mind stopping off along the way --

Raleigh/Durham area

Seattle

Providence/Hartford/or Boston

Raleigh/Durham is a really nice area. I've got lots of relatives and some great friends down there so I'm in Raleigh all the time. It's just not quite as "happening" as places like NYC/Boston/Chicago. Tons of great business opportunities though.

it's also a good "center" point to explore other parts of that neck of the land.

i've got just about every city covered in the midwest and am pretty familiar with the ins and outs of a lot of places from McCook, Nebraska east to Cleveland, as far north as Minneapolis/St. Paul stretching down to Nashville.

i pretty much cover the midwest now as it is for my job and i have lived in 6 states out here at some point and time.

If I currently had a choice [which I don't], it'd be London. I'd never get bored there.

Good point. You might want to check out Asheville while you're at it. Beautiful city. And the news station could use a new anchor or reporter.  Silly

I know it posses a high standard of living,

Once my home in Los Angeles gets sold I can get a house in a nice neighborhood thats x2 as big and I can be close to Family in nearby The Bahamas and Dominican Republic.

So it kind of balances out.

nice neighborhood

 rotfl  Unless ou are talking about Star Island, there is no such thing. My parent's place is easily worth $500-650K, and while it USED to be a great neighboorhood, it has gone to hell with people buying houses/property like my parents, demolishing the houses, then building houses that take up almost every inch of the cleared property. It's disgusting to watch houses and yards that you grew up in and played on being replaced by these house only properties. Not to mention a few blocks away, they demolished a whole block that had these nice evenly spaced buildings with 4 two bedroom apartments in each, lots of grass and trees, and replaced it with $900,000 townhomes built one on top of eachoter, and almost no vegetation. If you want to live like that, enjoy.

Carlsbad, CA. I've now been to all but two major metro areas in the U.S., and I like both San Diego and L.A. Carlsbad is nicely situated between San Diego and L.A., with enough of a suburban (slightly rural) feel to keep me from feeling I'm living in crowded space. The beach is about as private as I could tell a public beach could get. A home that overlooks the Pacific would be the best by far.

But I'm not complaining about the Midwest - as long as I can still visit the West Coast Big grin.

 yes 

I'm enjoying living in Canada so I could see myself in Montréal or maybe Vancouver. I'd like to start saving and buy something somewhere warm for retirement. Victoria doesn't cut it for 'warm' weather.
