  1. You'll Be Bored Out of Your Mind - If you are looking for things to fill your time, it's not hard to do in Indiana. Even the little town of Nashville, boasts being the "artists' colony of the Midwest." Arts and culture abound, too, in the college town of Bloomington. It has concerts, festivals and the world-renowned Jacobs School of Music to fill your calendar. Golfers have the Pete Dye Golf Trail to try. Lake Michigan offers miles of shoreline to explore. Indianapolis offers museums, parks, libraries, fairgrounds and the zoo. Columbus has more than 70 buildings designed by famous architects. The state is a good place to be a sports fan, whether you're a Hoosier basketball fan or like to watch cars speed by at the Indianapolis 500 every May.
  2. The Climate Will Kill You - Indiana's not winning any awards for best places to retire by climate, but isn't there a saying about what doesn't kill you makes you stronger? In Indiana, you can brag about experiencing it all: raking leaves, shoveling snow, braving storms or finding a lakeshore breeze. You'll see fields of corn, soybeans and wheat. You'll experience the four seasons. You might even dodge a tornado. You can tell your grandkids all about how you used to have to walk 5 miles to school in the snow, uphill both ways.

  4. You Just Bought the Farm - You're not dead yet. But you might want to look into your insurance policies. The myth-busting website Snopes.com says the old idiom "buy the farm" may have originated with American soldiers whose death benefits allowed their families to pay off the mortgage on the family home or farm. When you retire, it's natural to start thinking about your own mortality. Consider your health insurance and your life insurance. Then, as you gaze out at the farmland of the Hoosier state, you won't have to worry that much about "buying it." Just rock on in that porch rocking chair.
  5. Your Grandkids Won't Visit You Here - OK, you don't have the mountains or the ocean to draw visitors. However, you can offer "Hoosier Hospitality." It's a thing here. The same way Hawaii has aloha and Georgia has Southern charm, Indiana has a warmth that many places lack. The state even awards people for their tireless hospitality. Winners range from diner owners to winery workers. You could be next.
