If you’re approaching retirement, you may well be contemplating different things, such as when is the best time to retire and also how you’ll keep yourself occupied.

No doubt, you’re also considering where to retire. You may prefer to stay in your local area, or you may consider relocating somewhere new. If you’ve not yet made up your mind, then a helpful practice is to consider all the things you enjoy doing most and look for areas that best support them.
