    I actually live in McKinney, about 30 miles north of Dallas. It’s a growing city with plenty of more room to grow. The taxes are getting ridiculous though, they've raised our property tax to the max for several years now. They have plans to expand the DART line to McKinney one day but it currently stops in Plano which is about 5 miles south of McKinney.

    As you alluded to, age and health of a lot to do with it and something most of us will have to deal with one day. Another advantage I forgot to mention is no state tax and the hospitals available in the North Texas/DFW area are plentiful. There’s about 7-8 major hospitals within 15 miles or so from McKinney that soecialize in everything from cardiac, strokes, Level 1 trauma and even most major burns now.

    Also, just every suburb has their own mefical service/ambulances (part of the fire department) that have very short response times. I was just thinking about this because I recently got back on a vacation from Montana and was thinking to myself how screwed someone would be if something happened to them as were driving.

    Yeah, I’m just a few blocks from there. I definitely wouldn’t have said what I said earlier if I lived on the west side of McKinney. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really nice just more commercialized/sterile and doesn’t have the same “vibe” as the downtown area.

    To be honest, I haven’t been to downtown Grapevine in years and I’m it’s changed a lot like downtown McKinney. I’ve heard a lot of people say how much they like it, I should check it out.

    I’m partial to both lakes and mountains so maybe Tahoe, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, possibly Washington, or Oregon...
