Weather topped my priority list. I like to stay active so I wanted to live in a place where the weather allowed outdoor sports year round.

One thing that's keeping me away from places like Arizona and Las Vegas is the heat in the summer. Maybe some people can play out in 100+ degree heat, but I'm too much of a wimp! ;-)

Anyway, I may just end up staying right here, in the Seattle area, when I retire. Granted, it's a bit damp and dark and gloomy some parts of the year, but the scenery is marvelous, and when the weather is good, it's to die for! There's plenty to do outdoors, and I figure I can work out indoors when the weather is bad. I also like the fact that there is good public transportation, which means I can save auto expenses. For some reason, auto expenses are a big nuisance for me, and I would have been able to save a lot more money and retire sooner if I didn't have them.

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 go.
