10 affordable retirement towns
Median home price: $150,000
This mild city is often included in a number of "best city" lists, and it is easy to see why. It has an emerging music scene, good restaurants, more than 30 art galleries, and has a very lively, walkable downtown area. The city tends to get crowded during the summer, but it is in driving distance from nine major waterfalls and Great Smoky Mountains National Park for those looking to get into the country. The climate also stays in the almost perfect 70-degree range with light snow in the winter.
