The 20 best places to live on just a Social Security check | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it

One state had even more cities on this list than Indiana, and that was the Longhorn State, with seven different cities ranking in the top 20, including the top city overall: Wichita Falls.

What kind of housing do aging boomers need?

The contradictions abound. Americans want a fuller life, but they don’t want to live where the amenities, the libraries and theaters and bookstores and where the other people are, which is in the city. They are worried about their health but don’t want to be where the hospitals and the doctors and the specialists are. They want peace of mind, but they still want 2,000 square feet of house in the middle of a lawn that has to be mowed, on a cul-de-sac where they can’t get transit. Basically they want what they have now, but on one floor.
