Recently, I ran across an article about the best (and worst) states for retirement. It caught my attention because the “best” state turned out to be …. Nebraska! Many would be surprised at this. After all, who would retire in such a cold place in the middle of the country? Actually, I was not at all surprised. I was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and spent the first twelve years of my life there. I still visit relatives in the Cornhusker state and enjoy the wonderful people, slower pace and beautiful scenery the state has to offer.
