"Is springfield a good retirement area?"

We are retired military couple(55+) and looking for a nice area to move to. We are still wanting to work so employment is a question. We want to go to a area that has mountains and lakes. We want four seasons but not too extreme in the summer or winter. We want to know what healthcare is like, we both are 6mo. out of cancer treatments for both. What is housing like..we are looking to rent and hope to find an adult community but don't need assisted living. We are interested in culture and entertainment in the area. We would appreciate any info anyone has to offer..good and bad! Thank you in advance. Teresa & Mike
