Dream retirement city?
For me it'd probably be Santa Barbara, a few hours away from LA, great weather and scenery, pretty quiet and naturey except for the ugly and loud monstrosity named UCSB.
Alternatively, I could go with something more exotic like Ibiza or Mykonos, but I wouldn't live there all year round because there's so many tourists and it's on a tiny island.
On the higher end, if my carry and coinvest keeps performing the way they are, something in the Hamptons or Beverly Hills wouldn't be out of the question, with Beverly Hills more suited for a high profile, early retirement. Miami would be a nice secondary place, you'd just have to choose a good neighbourhood so the latino and black kids don't bother you.
