Retirement may be the perfect time to relocate for many people. You are no longer tied to your job and you finally have time to pursue your hobbies or move closer to family. There are many aspects to consider when deciding where to retire. If you think part-time work may be a factor, consider a place with a growing economy. If you need health facilities, consider a location with a larger amount of retirees or that is known for their health care. Also, take in to account recreational activities, outdoor activities, and what type of scenery you would like (beach, mountains, city, etc.). Of course budget should be an important factor. Determine what your most important needs are and your budget, than begin researching for your dream retirement location!
