Even with their retirement nest eggs diminished by the tough economy, some retirees aren’t giving up on their dreams of living in beautiful spots. Instead, they are searching for similar but cheaper alternatives.

SmartMoney calls these locales “doppelgangers” — more affordable twins with similar climate, culture, and amenities than their better-known other half.

Here are their suggested substitutes:

  • Prescott, Ariz., as an alternative to Sedona, Ariz.

  • St. Augustine, Fla., instead of Sarasota, Fla.

  • Chattanooga, Tenn., instead of Ashville, N.C.

  • Bloomington, Ind., instead of Madison, Wis.

  • Caron City, Nev., instead of Boulder, Colo.

  • Auburn, Ala., instead of Pinehurst, N.C.

  • Bellingham, Wash., instead of Eugene, Ore.

  • San Luis Obispo, Calif., instead of Santa Barbara, Calif.
