People tell you that some of the best places to retire are the small 100K population college towns. The university brings speakers and activities to town, giving you something to do. Students are usually willing to do part time work if you need anything done.

In Missouri the two we would mention are Columbia and Springfield.

Columbia is not far from Lake of the Ozarks for recreation, decent hospitals and doctors, major airports and big city shopping or museums abt 2 hrs away.

Springfield has easy access to Branson and Lake of the Ozarks (not quite as close (abt 4 hr) to big cities and major airports).

Missouri state income tax is mostly flat 6%, sales tax is local but usually 7+%. Property taxes moderate.
