I have been having this discussion with myself for several years. I, too live in L.A., and considering where to live in retirement. I got the "Places Rated Almanac" which rates several hundred North American citieson ten issues (crime, education, cost of living, etc.) Ultimately not really helpful, as you must set your own priorities and make some decisions. There is also a retierment places almanac, same thing. If you want to live in a small town, close to fishing and low cost of living, then LA is not for you. If weather is important, cosmopolitan environment, plenty of entertainment, best health care, etc, then LA is the only choice. I think I'm stuck with LA. PV Peninsula is just too good. Too bad, as I could have a palace somewhere else for what I have here.

I considered Santa Fe (no ocean, too cold), Seattle (too cold, dreary), San Antonio (Beautiful, affordable, but no ocean), Carmel (Expensive, even to us) and several other places.

Much better subject than LTC, don't you think?
