We are nibbling at the retirement apple and may want to take a big bite. I want a retirement community with some social interaction possible. I see things like "assisted living" or "continuing care" and I'm not sure what the terms entail. Then again, another question is "Where?" Near a large city will be expensive. There are several 55+ communities nearby. Any experience with these? The one we know is 55+, completely independent living, but with some planned activities, a pool, 9-hole golf course, club house, and a few other amenities. Not high end stuff.

Getting a bit remote,

or in L.A.

Maybe more affordable?

Hard to estimate how we will "fit in" to any community without actually living there.

Is anyone here actually retired? Advice?
