    This is a great compilation of cities. I didn’t think, upon opening the article, that it would be this informative. I like how it talks about several cities and what in them makes them great retirement spots, not just why it’s a great city. It’s awesome to read something so informative and that helps make someone make a decision!

    Maine is a nice area for older people, but the winters can be pretty cold and harsh. I could see myself retiring in a foreign country, due to the unbeatable cost of living, but you have to be on your toes sometimes if you choose that – some people might try to take advantage of older people in certain countries, and it can be difficult to deal with tricky situations when you are physically far away from family and friends who can help you out.
