Weston-super-Mare is certainly still a popular place to retire but it's also rapidly expanding.
This is causing people's traditional view of the seaside town to change.
ITV News brought together a group of young people, a representative from North Somerset Council and someone who has lived in Weston for nearly 50 years to discuss its future.
The aim was to find out what young people who live in Weston think of their town and whether they'll be sticking around to watch it grow?
Sue Maguire has seen huge changes in Weston since the 1960s and she's keen for young people locally to be given great opportunities.
Weston-super-Mare's MP John Penrose is optimistic that going forward the growing town will be able to hold onto its younger generation.
Although some young people may see their future outside Weston there is hope yet that going forward the age gap can become smaller as the town becomes bigger.
