We have a while before we retire but when that day comes it will be somewhere close to Nashville or anywhere in Tennessee. Tennessee is paradise compared to the hell hole I live in (SW Ohio).
I picked East TN because Tennessee is 'friendly' for retirees (low cost of living, personal and property taxes, etc., etc.), the tri-state areas of TN, VA, and NC are immediate, and there's breath-taking beauty in every direction.
The fact that some of the tastiest motorcycling roads in America run all that area doesn't hurt anything either...
