No. of Recommendations: 0
I'll probably be retiring in about 8 years or so and I've started to look around at the possibilities for life in retirement. Originally, I didn't like the idea of a retirement community at all. But lately I've thought of the benefits. But so far all of the retirement communities that I've looked at are built around golf courses. I've never liked golf, and I don't think I ever will. But they must add a lot to the costs--and the people who live in them probably like golf too. (I really don't get it--golf.) So, I'm looking for such a community without golf.

But the other thing is that I've lived in various states, all over the country; right now I'm living in South Carolina, and I can't see going to a place with snow. (And DW very much dislikes the desert.) So, I'm thinking of North or South Carolina. (Or some place pretty mild.)

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
