My parents are just beginning the retirement adventure! They have decided that the first thing they want to do is move out of their snowy winter wonderland and move back to the East coast. So, they are looking for a place to call home. They are looking for somewhere with:

1. low cost of living -- they have a huge amount of equity in their current house so they want to settle down in a place where they can afford to buy a reasonably priced home with as much cash as possible.

2. warmth

3. small to medium population

4. somewhat progressive views -- they have spent the last 10 years in Colorado so they dont know if they can go back to the bible belt conservative viewpoint and be happy with that.

5. Although it is optional they would like a town with a higher learning institution because my mother may want to teach part tiime.

Anyone have any personal suggestions?
Shannon
