*Columbia, South Carolina
*Fort Worth, Texas

As a resident of Tucson, I can vouch for its retiree-friendliness. Houses cost about as much as tacos, there’s a golf course every square mile and we have a lovely selection of buffets that are open at 4 p.m. Plus we also boast University of Arizona basketball games, which allow old folks to call security when young whippersnappers sitting in front of them are foolish enough to stand up and cheer rather than sit down.
