I'm not sure how much use the average person would get out of this magazine. It is sort of nice to read if you are dreaming about retiring, but the actual information is more extensive and useful on the internet. Try findyourspot.com instead and save the $18 for six issues of advertisements. If you are looking for retirement communities, it might be worth subscribing or just buying one issue at the news stand.

I was hoping for more in-depth articles than what I got here. The towns listed were mostly resort-types, and there was far less on living in regular places where one might retire and live on a fixed income. I think I expected more from "Where to Retire" than I got out of my subscription, so I didn't renew.

I used the subscription for one year.

None of the 'Retirement recommendations' had enough depth, pictures or information.

The articles rarely told you where you could get additional information, and if they did, they usually only listed one source.

The articles do not consistently tell you about the benefits/penalty of retiring in a particular area, as I hoped they would. In other words I wanted to see each article include information about taxes for retirees (do they tax Pensions ? social security? State taxes for those over 65 ? Property tax reductions ? Homestead exemptions ? ...)

If you know what region of the country you are interested in, you might be better off grabbing a couple of regional magazines to help you find locations that fit your needs or meet your criteria. Then do some online research. The retirement suggestions in this magazine are all over the place, and all over the financial budget.

The magazine is filled with lots of sales and advertisements.

This publication seems to focus more on real estate ads than critical reviews of those locations we might be interested in.

Well written, and they do cover a diverse number of retirement topics. When reporting on "55+" communities, I found it a bit strange that they left out The Villages, by far the largest, one of the oldest and most comprehensive "55+" community in the US.

If you are 55+ and looking for retirement Villages then you will like this. However, if you are more interested in living in an area outside of a retirement community this is not the magazine for you. One of the features I did enjoy was the breakdown info on a particular city/cities, such as average income, demographics, climate, etc.

If you're not sure where you want to retire, this magazine is a good place to start your research. Not only does it offer articles and ads to help you with your search, it may open your eyes to places you hadn't considered. Articles also include information on retirement planning, relocation and other things to consider before making that leap.

This magazine consists of reviews, and recommendations, and information about places to retire. It focuses on things seniors are interested in like climate and cities features like museums and universities, and cost of living. It even has a two-page-spread cost of living comparison chart in every issue. But one piece of information that is of extreme importance to seniors looking for a place to retire that you wont find in this magazine is crime rate statistics. I'd like to see this magazine publish a two-page-spread crime rate statistics comparison chart.

I've been reading this magazine for several years (I am 60). Research is the number one way to ensure you retire where you want to. In addition, the selections Where to Retire makes are great places to visit. Combine holidays with research and you will be prepared to make the best decisions for your future.
I chose 5 stars as there are many photos.....climate information...cost of living...things to do...places to live. I like that it's all at your fingertips in one issue.
The only down to this magazine? It's not available through Kindle.
