Where Should I Retire?

We want to retire on a quiet lake within an 11-hour drive of L.A. for around $500,000. Where should we go?

Dear MarketWatch,

My husband and I would love to retire on a nice, quietish lake an under 11-hour drive from Los Angeles. Our budget is around $500,000 for two to three bedrooms. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
