I am in the process of moving to Bella Vista Arkansas. If you like rolling hills with lots of trees, it's a very nice area, and a lot cheaper to live in than Florida. If you are over 60, you can go to the state colleges and take courses for free and just buy your books. My Mom got her teaching certificate that way. It does have golf, but it has lots of other ammenities, too, and nice houses start at about $100k.
It is a retirement community that is unincorporated (largest unincorporated township in the country) The population is old enough that they don't have schools, and the kids bus to the next town over, which is about 8 miles (Bentonville, home of Walmart) Anyway, lots of people including myself are retiring there. It's about 1 hour to Fayettvile, 2 hours to Tulsa, 2 hours to Brandon, and 3 hours to Kansas City, so there is lots in the area if you enjoy civilization. Hal
