People retiring today have different issues that those of a generation ago. The economy, especially the price of housing, has made relocation to tropical hotspots and bustling big cities unaffordable for many, but that doesn’t mean that a fabulous retirement is out of reach.
With advanced technologies and improved city services, many formerly dull areas have new life. Retirement in Michigan offers many great opportunities, and a few obstacles to overcome.

When you’ve accepted that a few days during the winter can limit travel in the state, consider these exciting facts about the state:
1. Michigan’s average home prices are more affordable
than similar houses throughout the United States. Due to economic issues, buyers can find great properties for a fraction of what they’d pay elsewhere. Most suburbs are fabulously affordable, but those adjacent to Detroit, such as Grosse Pointe, are priced out of reach for some.
2. Plenty of recreation opportunities are available in the Great Lakes State
. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the fishing spots and hiking paths. The state’s four seasons and its 11,000 inland lakes offer beautiful landscapes throughout the year. You’ll appreciate Michigan’s natural beauty, even if your idea of enjoying the great outdoors is sitting window-side in a cute café.

3. Michigan is known as the “Riviera of the Midwest!”
In addition to outdoor fun, the state is known for fabulous support of the arts. Attend a play or symphony in the city, or check out galleries and craft shows, offering everything from fine art to quilts and crafts.
4. If your idea of retirement in Michigan includes swinging some “sticks,”
both public and private golf courses are found throughout the state. Several championship courses are available, and some private courses grant tee times to non-members (call for specifics). Course fees are surprisingly less expense than those seen in many parts of the country.
5. Where there are colleges, there are incredible opportunities
for supporting sports teams, enjoying the arts, and finding the finest healthcare. Michigan’s largest institutions of higher education are in Ann Arbor (University of Michigan) and East Lansing (Michigan State University), but several great schools are scattered throughout the state. Retirement in Michigan can include enjoying the college atmosphere, or taking those classes you never had time for.
