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.

Los Angeles, There is a reason why GTA's San Andreas & Los Santos are such popular games. Imagine playing that game in any other city? Weak.

Oregon is an awesome place to live.

No sales tax.
We have ocean, mountains, rivers, lakes, deserts, lots of trees and great scenery
We get all the seasons.
We have NBA and MLS teams. Hopefully MLB/NHL soon and eventually NFL.
Weed is basically legal, at most its a ticket. Drive 20 min to WA and its legal
Nike was founded, and now based out of Oregon. Phil Knight does a lot for the state
Oregon Ducks football
Very little gang activity, low crime, relatively safe and laid back state
Very affordable state to live in
No threat of terrorist attacks
No hurricanes or devastating earthquakes
Not overcrowded

I doubt South Dakota is in the top half of US states people move to to retire.
Neither the guy who brought it up nor I said it was. You've made three posts arguing with yourself about some nonexistent point you dreamed up.

Flagstaff, AZ was a really nice town when I visited. I wouldn't mind living there when I'm older and raising a family. Nice climate and a good area. Also, it is a pretty easy drive to Pheonix, the Grand Canyon, and the Petrified Forest.

So South Dakota is a great place to retire, except that the reasons he cites are not what retirees are actually looking for and the climate is specifically what they don't want.

Hawaii, and if that fails California (somewhere on the water, the inland communities are full of trailer trash meth heads and brown gangs who drop n-bombs all day).

3rd would be New England. Better people up that way.

"I heard SD is a great place for retirement" /= "SD is one of the statistically top 10 places to retire." Stop trying to create an argument where there isn't one. His original statement is totally open-ended, not this hard stance you're dreaming it up to be. Put it back in your pants and stop trying so hard to be right about things that nobody was even talking about. It's pathetic.
