We really enjoyed this two-part article in the Florida Times Union written by Bill Besser. After six years of investigative travel and countless discussions, he and his wife have narrowed their retirement location to two island spots: St. Simons Island, Georgia and Sanibel Island, Florida. With his wife leaning toward St. Simons and Bill leaning toward Sanibel, the articles detail their consideration process. They agree to decide after a tie-breaking visit to each island. With a love for both destinations, they consider housing costs, healthcare, the community, activities for the grandchildren, opportunities to get involved, restaurants and fishing.
Clearly struggling with the decision, read through their process to see which of two islands they’ve chosen to call home.
