  4. Palm Springs - Palm Springs will always retain a lore for many of the older crowd, thanks to the fact that this was where Frank Sinatra used to run. However, while this was the biggest place to be in the 1950s and 1960s, there are some drawbacks to choosing this as a destination for retirement in California. For one thing, it is a desert town, so temperatures can rise to more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, which can be pretty tough for seniors. However, the golfing is great and the median home cost is a very low $198,800, higher than the national average but on the low end of the California average.
  5. Eureka - Located in the Northern part of California, Eureka is a town that looks like a perfect match for the retirement crowd. It is full of Victorian homes and is perfect for hiking, bird watching, and backpacking, making it seem like the ideal spot for retirement in California. While it does not feature the super sunny weather of Southern California, it does enjoy mild temperatures almost year round. Even better, the median home cost is $207,300, very low for California and just slightly higher than the national average
