As it ages the baby boomer population bulge is experiencing yet another epic migration. According to U.S. Census Bureau statistics, almost 3.3 million people 55 or over moved between 2004-2005. Many retiring boomers come to looking for an answer to a simple question - "What are the best retirement communities?"

John Brady, Topretirements' editor, urges acitve adults over 55 to start their quest for their perfect retirement community one step earlier - by taking a basic self-inventory.

Top questions for a top retirement
