You should add Huntington Beach, CA to your list. We were going to move from Chicago to there during our first year of retirement to be near my husband's kids and grandkids but the average age is about 32. We ended up in Seal Beach where the average age is 58. Now looking for our "forever" home with the best air for my bad lungs that isn't humid or in high altitude.

What??? Houstpn is a great place to live . . . know idea what you are talking about sleepiness nights? And wildfires and floods??? I wouldn't trade that city for any in the US. Culture abounds - theater, museums, great restaurants. And no income tax!! You should be ashamed putting down this great city.

I am that dreaded creature, a native born Texan. My husband and I spent almost 15 yrs in St. Louis, Mo. We lived in the burbs but worked in downtown St. Louis. Yes, like any city in the country it had its drawbacks, but we learned to love it, a fantastic Zoo, the people are friendly and kind. They have wonderful festivals for every occasion. Every family member from the very young to the very old is welcome. It has four beautiful seasons and much much more. If we were not Texans would have stayed there. Don't know who wrote this article but they need to investigate a little more.
