California > Walnut Creek

Located in the SF Bay Area in a section called East Bay, Walnut Creek seems to be a new mecca for local retirees. Why? Here are some reasons. It's clean and pretty, lots of open park spaces, it's a suburb of San Francisco but has a smaller town feeling to it so you get the best of both worlds. Fantastic library and tons of shopping and restaurants, trails and places for walkers, runners and bikers. And the weather is pretty darn nice, too!
