Need retirement location in US - pls see criteria

Jump to last reply

So, I am about 5-6 years away from retirement. Don't want to stay where I am now, too cold in winter and my arthritis is bad. Have list of other criteria as well (pls see below). Given the criteria, where would you suggest I investigate? Thanks!

* Mild winter, at least 65 degrees, and preferably not much humidity (arthritis)
* Large enough city to have vibrant cultural and educational facilities
* DECENT shopping! Nordstroms's equivalent, good brand-name discount outlets
* Large amount of small owner-operated Chowish resturants
*close enough to good airport hub with reasonable international airfare
* Vibrant Jewish community with supportive social services
* Must have excellent heath care options - teaching hospital or major medical center
* Can buy a decent house or condo for around $250K
