If family, money, health, etc......weren't the issue, where would you want to spend the rest of your retirement years? Mine used to be Israel, but now I fear the location could bring about a faster death than my allotted years. I think I would, and probably will, choose Daytona Beach, FL. You can actually purchase a condo with a beach view for a very reasonable amount of money. The economy is good, the beaches are nice and the town has a nice vibe. Everything is beautiful until the hurricane comes, but it doesn't happen too often.
