The Southwestern United States continues to attract retirees seeking a great place to retire. It is easy to understand why. Abundant sunshine, striking natural landscapes and a relaxed lifestyle are hallmarks of this part of the country. Unfortunately, many towns in the Southwest are expensive. Places such as Flagstaff, Arizona and Georgetown, Texas are often hailed as great places to retire, but they have living costs that are above the national average. Here, though, we have eighteen Southwestern towns that are worth considering for retirement. Each has living costs equal to or below the national average. Some of these towns are fairly well known, while others are still off the national radar. All of these places have safe neighborhoods, recreational and/or cultural amenities, a local or nearby public library, local or nearby accredited medical facilities and some sort of water conservation plan. Each also has a welcoming quality that makes it a desirable place to live. No one place is perfect, however, so we take a look at each town's drawbacks as well.
If you are planning on retiring there are pit falls that you need to plan for. The myths about retirement need to be dispelled. You need to try to predetermine your temperament for retirement, structure your time and develop strategies for handling the financial realities. This book will help you make the right decisions for what could be the most joyful time in your life.
Decades ago, nearly 80 million Boomers came in together with similar energy, dreams and visions for a better world. They "bonded" in their youth and laid the groundwork for what they could become later in life. Boomers are in now reaching their full spiritual, mental, emotional, psychological power. This is a generation who knew how to dream together. How can they remember and reclaim those dreams as they approach and enter retirement? In an easy-to-use combination of essays and thought-provoking questions, this book provides a process for reclaiming that energy, creating an intentionally meaningful retirement regardless of one's financial situation, and becoming a living legacy for those who follow. As Boomers, dreamers, pathfinders we can know the answers if we ask the deep questions. Enlightened Retirement gives you those questions to find your unique answers.
