Want to retire where residents live a long life, there are lots of doctors and hospitals nearby, and you can pursue an active lifestyle? Check out these 20 towns.
San Mateo is an ideal place to live an active lifestyle. Find fit neighbors to train with for Bay Area races, such as the annual Alcatraz Triathlon, which begins with a swim from The Rock. If you're looking to break a sweat inland, go for a hike, bike ride or a jog on San Mateo's six-mile Sawyer Camp Trail. Or test your windsurfing skills at the beach on the west side of Coyote Point Park, then go to a viewing platform at the top of the park for panoramic views of the bay.
Relax with a glass of heart-healthy wine on a weekend trip to Sonoma or Napa Valley, stretch your body with some beachside yoga, or play 18 holes at the nearby Half Moon Bay Golf Links. --H.Y.
