How can I help my parents with their retirement planning?

I am helping my parents plan their retirement by looking into possible cities and/or communities for them to settle. My father has worked in NYC for the duration of his professional career and wants to retire somewhere in the Northeast. After much internet research but very little progress, he wants to spend Sun-Tues (Oct. 13-Oct. 15) driving around DE, MD, PA, and northern VA to scope out possible areas.

Can I turn my parents from couch potatoes into spring chickens?

Both my parents are mad, Scottish and retired. They're 65 and 68, and weren't brought up in a culture of exercise. Now that they don't have a dog, they're terrifyingly sedentary. When I bring up the subject of exercise they either get defensive, or blow it off as something that crazy Americans do. How can I get them into some sort of vaguely regular exercise routine?
