For us, the peace and quiet, the wind whispering in the trees, the lovely countryside, and new friends we've made here provide us with what we wanted in retirement. We don't go to shows or movies much, don't smoke or drink, and just wanted serenity for the most part.

Same here! Our neighbors are wonderful people. We live in an association with 18 townhouses. Most of us are in our 60's, 70's and 80's. My next door neighbor is 83 and she runs circles around me!
They are truly hardy New Englanders!
We live 17 miles from Boston so if we had to get really good medical care we have it there. Our local doctors are really quite good and well educated because of the many many colleges in Boston and several good medical schools.
As I've said before, we live within walking distance of the ocean and it's wonderful. The water is very clear unlike the East River where you cannot see a thing.
The local gourmet supermarket is within walking distance and worth going to when they have a sale otherwise we go to the big supermarket 5 miles away when we have a big shopping to do.
Yes, peace and serenity are tops on my list of priorities!
