I see many elderly living here in Victoria, BC. This is most likely the result of it having less servre winters then the rest of Canada...

I'd choose Pacific Northwest Region especially Portland.

:D I already live there: Arnhem; quiet transport (smooth trolleybusses), elevated busstop platforms so you can just 'roll in' with your wheelie bin. Even the automatic doors of shops open slightly slower. Loads and loads of castles, galleries and theatres, no noisy industry, no airport. Just lovely. If not Arnhem, then The Hague. Both known for their slower pace.

Many Danes move to southern France and Spain, where they can bring their public and private pension, save a little on taxes and have free healthcare... that sounds okay... but Copenhagen isn't bad either, it's just a little cold in the winter..

For me time will tell...

For seniors, I think small to medium cities would be preferable. Most likely Seattle or San Diego

^^Yep. San Diego would be perfect if you've got the $$. Perfect weather and location (next to Mexico & LA). Beautiful beaches. Gorgeous scenery. A booming urban center. Outdoorsy lifestyle. Laid back back back.

My kind of town. :D

Buenos Aires.

It's like other nice places, but affordable.
