8 Tempting Tourist Towns
Retirees who relocate to cities known as popular vacation spots learn to love life behind the tourist curtain. They appreciate the beauty and allure of why the city became popular with visitors in the first place, while learning all the secrets of avoiding the push of tourists. It’s a fun mission to uncover the inside stories of cheap admissions, attractions off the beaten path and the best days and times to dine at their favorite restaurants. Find out more about these attractive locales: The Adirondacks, NY; Hot Springs, AR; Lafayette, LA; Las Vegas, NV; Outer Banks, NC; Park City, UT; Rapid City, SD; and Sarasota, FL.
Scouting Out Your Retirement Location
Part of the joy of making a move in retirement is the anticipation of finding a place that is made-to-order according to your wish list. Weather, traffic, shopping, housing and more can be assessed in the discovery part of your relocation. The Internet is great for starters, but being there in person and talking to locals will help cement the decision. Many master-planned communities offer stay-and-play packages allowing a couple days to check out the lifestyle.
