Retirement could be the prize everyone seeks for after years of hard work. A change to doing the things you adore rather than having to adjust your life to the everyday grind. A big part of retirement could be to consider relocating to a place that you can spend years basking in the fulfillment of your life. As a moving company in Oklahoma City, we are familiar with towns and cities from coast to coast, so we have a few ideas of the spots in the United States to retire in.

El Paso, TX

El Paso, while not as well known as Dallas or San Antonio, is an incredible town to reside in. They have one of the lowest costs of living in the nation, and with no income tax. It also provides a fantastic climate all the time and lots of shops and things to do all throughout the town. Even better, you're a quick drive from Northern Mexico if you need a fast vacation, or a simple flight to Cancún if you wish to enjoy life to the maximum.

Nashville, TN

Nashville can be an expensive area, but Tennessee doesn't have income tax. Furthermore, Nashville supplies the very best country music in the nation. But, in the event that country music does not do it for you, there are more variations you will find very easily around the city. In addition, it offers possibly some of the best BBQ on the earth (alongside Texas, obviously). So, in case food and music are things you can't do without, Nashville needs to be a top contender for places to retire to. Moreover, it makes a great holiday location, so in the event you have family, they might come visit you as opposed to you visit them.

Augusta, GA

When people mention Georgia they usually focus on its southern charm. Augusta is the epitome of this feeling. It's got year-round moderate temps and historic British colonial buildings in abundance. Additionally, Augusta is renowned for having a flourishing art scene, so if you love to be surrounded by the arts or creating art, you'll not be wanting for anything.

Catalina Foothills, Arizona

Catalina Foothills is among the smaller places on this list. Located in bright and sunny Arizona, it features 300 days of sunlight annually which compliments all the outside points of interest it contains. Included in these are The Sabino Canyon, that welcomes over a million viewers a year, and the more local Tucson Botanical. Additionally, the area carries a population of around 50,000 people and around half of them are over 50. The area also provides some of the finest healthcare facilities in the state.

Tulsa, OK

Tulsa is a well-known and polished treasure. It features a population of over 400 thousand, making it a nice sized town supplying a ton of attractions. Remarkably, it supports half of the state's parks and a good combination of eateries. The median house price in Tulsa is a reported $175 thousand, well underneath the nation average of $280 thousand. Therefore, selling your old residence and relocating to Tulsa might give you ample profit the bank to spend on the stuff you adore.

Tulsa also has plenty of startup companies. So, should you be someone that would like to do business consulting throughout retirement, Tulsa is a perfect place for you.

Littleton, Colorado

Littleton rounds off the listing as a prime spot to choose for retirement. With a population of 40 thousand, Littleton offers all the amenities you may desire in a city without all the people. Its closeness to Denver allows for short daytrips and an international airport. The sole challenge with Littleton is that it can be a higher priced location to be in. Even so, this is often considered inconsequential when compared to its positive aspects, which includes a nearly non-existent crime rate.
