Best Base for Retirement

Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia has been voted by sailors in the Navy Times Best Base Award program as their pick for the base closest to which most want to retire. SUBASE Kings Bay is 30 minutes from the metropolitan area of Jacksonville but not in the midst of urban crowding and circumstances that go along with a big city. The base is relatively young (just over 20 years old) and the surrounding community has tripled in

size since construction of facilities began. Yet, there is plenty of space, not a lot of traffic, and a conveniently laid out base infrastructure. Most of

the critical services are nearly all within walking distance. Two of the factors which make Kings Bay appealing for retirement is the overall low cost

of living as well as a very supportive, friendly local community. Sailors also praised the excellent public school system and down-to-earth

atmosphere. For those who like to travel, a big plus is the proximity to Jacksonville International Airport as well as I-10 and I-95. The weather is

also great and the Kings Bay area was popular among retirees active in outdoor recreation.
