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

Yeah, here's an article specifically about where retirees choose to move and why.
Quote:
Not all of the 3 million Americans who will turn 65 next year will be moving, but those who do will most likely chose warm cities such as Bradenton-Sarasota in Florida, which was voted the most popular city in the U.S. for retirement.
....
"In addition to warm cities, we've also seen that seniors are attracted to communities that already have a significant population of retirees," said J. Jennings Moss, the editor of Portfolio.com

....
Obviously both of those places (the top two cities) are attractive because of weather but also because they developed the infrastructure for retirees over the years," he added in an interview.

Palm Bay-Melbourne, Homosassa Springs, Ocala, Punta Gorda and Port St. Lucie, all in Florida, rounded out the top 10 retirement destinations.

Nearly all the most popular locations were coastal cities.

Although the top 10 locations were in the southeast and southwest, Thomas said there were some exceptions, including Seaford in Delaware, Barnstable in Massachusetts, which includes Cape Cod, and Eugene, Oregon. All were among the top 30 cities.
