Road riding bicyclists returning from a road ride to the Vail Flea Market. A beautiful day in Tucson, AZ.
I think that retirement is ALL about quality of life. When you choose the lifestyle that suits you, be it golfing, travel, hiking or biking, the location you select will make all the difference. The thing that will surprise you most of all is that it does not have to be expensive.
My husband and I winter in an RV resort on the eastside of Tucson, AZ. The award winning park is called Rincon Country East (8989 East Escalante Rd.). We live in a Park Model (trailer) that is about 12 feet wide and about 35 feet long. It over looks the Pantano Wash and the Rincon Mountains in the east and the Catalina mountains in the north. It cost us less than $15,000. ( We also own another park model that is for sale or rent. We rent it for $50 a day.) We do rent the park model spaces but it is a small price to pay for a million dollar location!
Now comes the life style part. We live a 5 minute or less drive from the beautiful Fred Inke public golf course. Road riding bicyclist can ride to leave the park and take the Saguaro National Park loop or get on the Old Spanish Trail road to go for a day ride.
We have not sacrificed one single thing in the "life style" department and we can still afford to do almost anything else we want. What a deal!!!
