Retirement Location: Maybe San Diego?
by Elana G
I am just retiring now after 31 years as a NYC public school teacher. I love New York, and have friends and family here, but I hate the winters.
I do not like Florida - too humid, not really for me. I was looking for a place to spend the month of February- I feel that some depression that I suffer from gets worse in the winter as well.
I've decided to try spending February in San Diego, CA. I've vacationed there a few times, and love the vibe of the city. So--- I went on Airbnb and found myself a studio apartment in the back of a private house - and I rented it for this coming February (2016). I know this was a bit impulsive, but I felt that if I didn't just do it, it might not happen.
Anyway, fingers are crossed that I will have a good experience, and enjoy leaving frozen NYC behind for 29 days (2016 is a leap year....)
