As mild as the winters are here in the Dallas, Texas area they’re still too darn cold for me. I was born and raised in the wintry climes of Chicago and got out as fast as I could. I thought Texas would be like an eternal summer but was wrong.
So I took a break from politics and took a winter trip to Arizona and now that I’m back I can’t get Arizona off my mind. I finally found an almost eternal summer and loved it (Hawaii’s great too but frankly too expensive).
I landed in Phoenix and took a short drive to Scottsdale to see what I’ve heard is a great place to visit and eventually retire. What I heard was so right! I had planned to drive around to some other cities but Scottsdale captivated me. To make a long story short, I didn’t want to come back . . . but I had to . . . at least for now.
Check out some links — maybe you’ll find Scottsdale your kind of place (No! The Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce isn’t paying me for this post!):
