I’m a single 54-year-old female looking to retire in the next 10 years, but looking to move to my future retirement spot during the next two years. I love dry summer weather, hiking, biking, water sports, year-round outdoor living. I don’t like cold, snowy winters, unless I’m driving there to ski!
I like to be close enough (within a couple of hours) to art and culture, but on a daily basis I’d like close access to trails and lakes. I don’t want to be too secluded but also don’t want to be packed into a subdivision.
My monthly retirement budget will be around $3,500-$4,000. I’ll also have money from the sale of my house.
