Retire to Portsmouth, New Hampshire
One of the towns you might consider is Portsmouth in New Hampshire.
So this is one place where, as a pensioner, you would not feel like a fish out of water.
This is also a place you will love if you enjoy cold weather and have a passion for history.
The development of Portsmouth can be traced back 400 years when the King of England granted land to the Governor of Newfoundland.
It sure will come as a pleasant surprise that living in Portsmouth you will not need to pay either income tax or sales tax.
You'll also find that property taxes are affordable, amounting to 1.9% of the assessed value of your property -- which brings us once again to the question of where you can expect to live.
All the same, you do have a number of interesting and innovative options.
You'll find old farmhouses standing on half-acre plots of land in Stratham, Durham and Dover; then there are the warehouses on the waterfront that have been adapted into condo lofts.
These come for an average price of $ 450,000.
You also have the choice of opting for new properties.
A three-bedroom house for a single family would cost you around $ 309,000.
You may be interested to know that hand in hand with the height of the development of the software industry, Portsmouth began to witness a vibrant nightlife.
So if you are game, there'll be plenty to keep you entertained with a number of fancy restaurants that have sprung up here, among other things.
You won't even have to go as far as Boston, since this town has a wonderful theatre of its own, apart from the Music Hall where concerts are regularly held.
Apart from this, don't forget that Boston isn't far away - and Boston is known for some of the best hospitals in the world.
If that's not enough, perhaps you'd welcome the news that New Hampshire provides senior citizens with assistance in the shape of sponsored drug program.
