    I heard long ago,that Santa Fe has one of the best resturants in the world, I wouldn’t mind visiting,but I don’t think that’s the place for me to live.
    I’m looking for a state where property taxes are low,cost of living is low,a small town population of less than 20K,surrounded by lots of retires.
    I’m thinking maybe Tenn.
    I don’t like winter.
