The day I moved into my new apartment in Grand Rapids, Mich., Paul McCartney played the city’s big sports/entertainment arena. For some reason, Sir Paul’s arrival drew much more attention than mine.

A decade prior, I’d briefly been a part-time resident, the landlord of a two-flat in a transitioning Grand Rapids neighborhood. This time, I was arriving from Evanston, Ill., just outside Chicago, determined to begin a new chapter in a smaller urban setting. I had made the decision to relocate in my 60s — for lots of reasons.

Midsize cities like Grand Rapids, many of them college towns or regional medical or technology hubs, are a good choice for older adults.
