If you’re looking for a new place to relocate, you should consider it 10 times before deciding to move to a big metropolitan area. What if a smaller town would suit you better? You wouldn’t want to decide on something that you’d later regret, right?

Perhaps you never considered moving to a smaller town, but it’s never too late to make the right decision. So make sure you don’t overlook any of the benefits that would come along the way. Obviously, we’ll start by saying that nothing compares with the peace and quietness that these cities would offer you.

But you also have to consider the fact that a smaller place will give you a tight-knit community, active senior groups, and a lower crime rate. Not to mention the low living costs! It all sounds amazing, right? These are 9 smaller towns where you could have all of the things listed above…and more!

    1. You’re right about that !! However if you happen to purchase or already own a property in a really desirable area, now a days, as a senior person, you can end up being harassed in rather sophisticated ways, just because someone one else wants your property.

  1. Regarding article by Dorothy ,”9 Amazing Small Towns to Retire In” Middletown, Connecticut is first. I grew up in Middletown and visit once in a while. Restaurants are a too many thing on Main Street,etc. The ability to purchase newspapers for local news is gone. Unless a college-related bookstore has changed its mind. It is no longer a Barnes/Noble corporate bookstore. Central News, a longtime outlet is long gone and is replaced by a sandwich shop. A lunch place called Ford News has no newspapers despite its name and serves meals like a diner till midafternoon . Also on Main Street north of that location is another diner. Both have been main stays on Main Street long before these new food palaces arrived on the scene and seem to give Middletown its new reputation. As for Wesleyan Univ., one must live downtown to only walk to campus for amenities. Middletown Area Transit buses operate Mon-Sat 6am-6pm only. I would like my former city to be like other New England towns with a operating main street. Grocery stores have left downtown also. Drug stores also are gone from downtown

  2. No, I am retired, and before they fund everyone they need to pay us retirees that worked their butts off to work to retirement and paid into what was known as S/S. Another way for people to sit on their butts and not have to do NOTHING to pay for their way!!!
