Leaving or children and grandchildren to another state 5-6 hours away.

My husband and I would like to go to a another state for an easier lifestyle, were not happy with the area we live in, its not changing for the good, not only that our house and 2 1/2 acres is just to much for us to keep up.
We live off a dangerous highway and to far from shopping.
My delima is I have a lot of anxiety about making the move, I feel guilty leaving my grown adult children and my grandchildren 3 boys and another grandson on the way. I see my daughters often who live close by. My son on the other hand lives about 45 minutes away and I don't see him as much, mostly on holidays, Christmas, thanksgiving, special occasions.
I feel guilty leaving my grandsons and not being around to babysit my sons new baby, when they need me. All my children are making me feel guilty as well about leaving. They keep saying were going to regret it.
Any advise on making this transition or even if I should.
