Very small town, great Sr. Center and a few Sr. Housing places. Close to medical areas. Very little jobs or education for older people

It's unfriendly, people are busy and don't bother with neighbors. Small town has barely any amenities, and you have to drive to other towns for certain things. It's great for safety and no crime.
