First, they made a list of all the cities they thought
they might want to retire to. They started with cities
in Florida, an obvious choice for retirees, then worked
their way up the east coast. Venice, Sarasota, Savannah,
Charleston, Beaufort, Columbia, Raleigh, and finally,
Wilmington, were some of the southeastern cities on
their retirement tour.
Then, they wrote a list of their priorities, both current
ones and those they could imagine forming down the
road – advanced education opportunities, medical care,
air travel, shopping, access to the beach, and a place
where they could experience all four seasons.
And, finally, they planned their tour.
“Before we started checking out places, we went
to the ideal-Living Show in Tysons Corner.” Herzog
said. They signed up for everything, sat in on all the
talks, visited every booth. They eventually ended up in
a lovely community in Wilmington, NC. “Sometimes,
Sharon and I sit out on the back deck with a drink in
the evening,” Herzog said, “and we look around at
our beautiful house and our great little neighborhood,
and we say, ‘we’re so lucky.’ It’s a really good feeling.”
Gary and Stephanie Hanson said it all started with
ideal-LIVING. They had been receiving the ideal-
LIVING magazine and went to a Show. “We were
tired of the snow, so I happily gave my snow shovel
to my neighbor and didn’t look back. It’s a much
more pleasurable lifestyle – the tra;c isn’t as bad,
the people are friendly, the environment is beautiful,
and the weather is second to none.”
At the ideal-LIVING Show, you can attend one or
all of the personal, interactive presentations and speak
with representatives from over 75 communities from
NC, SC, FL, GA, TN, VA, DE, PA plus international
destinations. Take advantage of special “Show Only”
discovery travel packages o;ered by many exhibitors
— you won’t know until you go.
Admission to the Show is free and there is no
obligation attached. So, take ideal a step further by
choosing your neighbors when you bring your friends.
