The first thing I consider:   Is my social security being taxed?  When I am looking for paradise such as you when my DH retires, these will be the states I consider... see below.

 

According to the Wall Street Journal, most states don’t tax your Social Security retirement benefits, including Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Alabama, Mississippi, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas, South Dakota, Wyoming, Arizona, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii. (The District of Columbia doesn’t charge taxes on Social Security retirement benefits either.)
