If you decide on an annuity, check out Vanguard. The message board "Retired Fools" has some pretty nasty things to say about annuities though.

You are on the right track with real estate. How about thinking along the lines of a rental property? Where I live, single family homes have less turn over than apartments. The return is lower than for a multi-unit, but at this point I prefer less hassle. Mine is very close to where I live and about half the size of the house I live in now. So, I collect rent and can downsize into the house later if I want.
