I'm thinking Scottsdale or Paradise Valley AZ...........

Maybe Hawaii in the summer months. Anyone know what the weather is like in the summer in Hawaii?

              The difference is humidity. Get a place on the beach and you can spend 6 months out on your balcony "pretending" you're not watching the scarecly clad young ladies.

                I would keep my home in the DC area; go to Scottsdale for part of the year and spend a month in Paris every year.

                    I like the sound of that plan. Most people don't know there are lakes not too far from Scottsdale as well as a National Forest. In the winter time the ski slopes are open up north and CA is only a 1 hr. flight away.

                      Lake Tahoe, it has everything I like, altitude for cooler tempatures, lake for water sports, mountains and snow for cross-country skiing, snowboarding and mountain biking, hiking trails, camping, fishing, and forest.

                      I previously lived in Vail Colorado so Vail, Breckenridge, or Aspen would be my next choices.

                      I'm all set to retire to Tahoe without winning lottery but I would require some serious lottery winnings to retire in Aspen.

                          Fargo, Ja?

                          Scared

                          Assuming the question means after winning a jackpot....who is going to look for a jp winner in Fargo?

                          Seriously, weather wise it would be Monterey, CA, but CA has too many problems of late.

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            Ultimately somewhere west/southwest of Austin. Spicewood, Marble Falls, Dripping Springs, Blanco, Wimberley, Fredericksburg, etc. Somewhere with plenty of acres and maybe with a river or creek that flows through it.

                             

                            For now though I would take somewhere around LA. Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach and Marina Del Rey are my top picks. I could settle with just visiting family who would be living in one of those areas listed in Texas.
