10 great places to retire in the US

Bend, Ore.

Overview
For $207,000, you could buy this: a three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,997-square-foot home built in 2000, says Eileen Dees, principal broker of Steve Scott Realtors. This single-level mountain-view home includes an attached two-car garage, formal living room, family room, a patio, and a one-fifth acre lot with room to park an RV.

Bend ranks among both the "top 10 four-season towns" and "top 10 mountain towns."

Active retirees in Bend enjoy downhill skiing at Mt. Bachelor, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, an antique car club and more, Dees says. Those who want to give back to the community can find the right volunteer opportunity through VolunteerConnect.com.

"Bend is a great family town and a wonderful place to retire," Dees says. "I have two friends who are in their late 60s who snowboard. We also have incredible nonprofit groups to get involved with. I've lived in Bend for 19 years and still love it."
