If Arizona had a beach, I would move there and never leave.

It depends what you value. Not everyone is a city guy. SD offers peace and quiet, very affordable living, and beautiful land in a lot of areas. If you love the outdoors you would probably love SD/Montana/Wyoming/Idaho etc. Conversely, if you were a city guy it would probably drive you nuts.

North Dakota, on the other hand, is basically a dumphole no matter where you are. Strong contender for worst state in the union.

Not everyone likes the same things you do.

My favorite cities to live in:

Charlotte, NC: Obviously. Large enough to have the NBA and NFL, museums, restaurants, clubs, etc. but still small enough to retain its southern charm. Nice mild climate. Easy trip to the mountains or the beach. Big airport with direct flights to all major US cities, Europe and the Caribbean.

Portland, Maine: Small town with a sophisticated city feel. Awesome restaurants, farmers markets, great foodie town. Beautiful coastline.

Calistoga, CA: At the north end of Napa Valley. Gorgeous mountainous setting, great weather, nice town with great stores and restaurants. Close to the coast, San Francisco.

Yes, but we're talking about old folks. Who generally

A. prefer warmer climates
B. need amenties/services/good hospitals

I doubt South Dakota is in the top half of US states people move to to retire.

I live in one of them. Just gotta get through the Summer, and the rest of the year is picture perfect. Beaches, tons to do, etc. Wouldn't mind seeing a rolling hill from time to time though haha.

1. Scottsdale, Ariz.; 45.4 years
2. Clearwater, Fla.; 43.8 years
3. Cape Coral, Fla.; 42.4 years
4. Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; 42.2 years
5. Hialeah, Fla.; 42.2 years
6. St. Petersburg, Fla.; 41.6 years.
7. Thousand Oaks, Calif.; 41.5 years
8. Honolulu, Hawaii; 41.3 years
9. Torrance, Calif.; 41.3 years
10. Centennial, Colo.; 41.1 years
