Retire to Bellingham, Washington

When the time comes to retire, choosing where you'd like to live in the twilight of your life can be a difficult decision.

As a senior citizen, your needs are different from those of the younger generation.

However, Bellingham might just be the place for you.

Approximately 12% of the residents of this town are over 65 years of age, so as a retired person, you should have plenty of company.

Here is a town that has the aspirations of a big city without the problems.

There are plenty of boat slips and quays, apart from the Interurban Trail System, which cuts through the town to reach Larrabee State Park.

If you're fond of skiing, you'll find that you are conveniently located a couple of hours away from Mount Whistler in Canada.

Looking at practicalities, the cost of a 3-bedroom house in Bellingham is in the region of $ 170,000.

This is considered quite reasonable compared with the prices on the east coast and other areas on the west coast.

Major cities located near Bellingham include Vancouver, which is 60 miles away in British Columbia and Seattle, 90 miles away.

You could even get a 4-bedroom house for less than $ 350,000, close to a quay where you may like to anchor a boat.

You'll probably find that St. Joseph's Hospital will take care of your needs, particularly since it has just been expanded to include a new cardiac care unit.

This has caused physicians to opt out of established networks.

As a result, it is a fairly common practice for residents of Bellingham to cross over into Canada, where they have access to more inexpensive prescription drugs.
