49. Homer, Alaska

Alaska may not seem like the state where you would want beachfront property, but the town of Homer has surprisingly mild weather, and it earns its nickname “the cosmic hamlet by the sea”. For anyone who loves to go fishing, this town is a dream come true.

One of the biggest allures to moving to Alaska is the fact that there is no state income tax, and no inheritance tax, either. Homer is also home to the most physicians per capita, so you will have access to a doctor quickly and easily.
