Alternatively, retiring to a small town in NOrthern Idaho or Western Montana might work. The weather is drier, there is some snow in the winter, they have FANTASTIC summers, and the people are really laid back and friendly. Some of the small towns are like resort towns in the summer. No public transportation, but if I can live in the middle of a small town, I could walk, bicycle, or cross-coutry ski to where I need to FWIW - I lived in Coeur d'Alene until last year (sans 4 years for college and my first 3 years of life) - it is a beautiful area - and when the summers are as planned - they are PERFECT! Winter's are long! But, if you ski, snowmobile or other winter sports - it's a perfect area - but it's NOT cheap! Of course you can pick Sandpoint or Bonners - but then you are looking at 9+ month winters!!My dad is a RE Developer in CDA and knows the area well - I worked with him for 7 years just prior to moving east - if you have any questions about the area, at the very least I can point you in the right direction.Oh and CDA gets PACKED in the summer. I happen to like it - lots of locals don't.C.
