Help in finding my "perfect" place

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to escape California. Apparently I'm looking for a place that doesn't exist, but I'm hoping that someone might be able to offer some input/assistance. These are some of my bullet points:
* WEATHER: I cannot deal with heat or humidity. I prefer cold over heat. That being said, the less the snow, the better, although I'll take snow over heat.
* My preference is for a smaller town/city, but relatively close to medical facilities.
* Since I'm retired, I'd prefer living in a town with a higher median age, and I certainly don't care about whether there are schools in the area (that includes colleges or universities).
* Affordable housing is a necessity. I wouldn't mind an area where I could place a mobile/manufactured home. I do NOT want to live in an apartment.
* Outdoor activities are not a necessity, although the area needs to be one where I can walk daily, preferably on relatively level ground.
* Although the town might be small, I'd like to have local (or nearby) amenities -- a Walmart, or a Costco, or a Kmart, or other large department-type store, along with more than just a neighborhood market.
* Low taxes and an airport within driving distance are a plus.

My preference is the Idaho/Montana/Oregon areas, but I would look into any suggestions in any states at this stage of the game. Just help me get out of California.

Thank you for any input offered.
