Well you don't have to go somewhere but many people do because of financial reasons, they can't afford to stay where they lived because their income is less when they are not working.

Several adventerous friends of mine are going this route. Hope they enjoy their retirement. Lots of advantages, lots of disadvantages there.

I have already retired in south Florida, where I was already living, but to a different county.
I have lived in Florida almost thirty years and I am tired of it.

Now I want to move my retirement, maybe to Albuquerque.

You can retire to New York City where:
1)You say "the city" and expect everyone to know you mean Manhattan.
2)You can get into a four hour argument about how to get from Columbus Circle to Battery Park but can't find Wisonsin on a ma0\p.
3)You think Central Park is "nature".
4)You believe that being able to swear at people in their own language makes you multi-lingual.
5)You've worn out a car horn (if you have a car).
6)You think eye contact is an act of aggression.

I'll add:

7) You don't care who parks in front of your residence because you don't need a car.
8) You can't fall asleep because for some odd reason there is no siren wailing within earshot.
9) Westchester is way out in the country, but somehow the Hamptons are an easy trip.

Be safe.

Point #3...In Central Park years ago when some 10-11 year olds were climbing on rocks...."hey look at this mountain"
Can't make this stuff up.
