Best Places to Retire Version XXIV

US News and World Report has profiles of 1000 places for retirement, and lists the following "Best Places to Retire" in a feature from 2007:

• Bozeman, Mont.
• Concord, N.H.
• Fayetteville, Ark.
• Hillsboro, Ore.
• Lawrence, Kan.
• Peachtree City, Ga.
• Prescott, Ariz.
• San Francisco, Calif.
• Smyrna, Tenn.
• Venice, Fla.

Of course you need to use great caution when interpreting these "best lists" because your personal retirement priorities are likely to differ from those of the magazine editor, but lists ofter a good "starting point" from which you can jump off to more information about areas and cities.

Lists are great when it comes to trying to find the perfect place to retire. Just make sure you do your homework first and be sure to visit the places you are considering at least twice, once in the summer and then again in the winter, before you make your final decision. What may be the perfect place for one person may not be so great for another.
