A lot of people envision retirement as a time when they can take it easy and enjoy a slower pace of life. But it can depend — sometimes to a great degree — on where you retire.
Finance site WalletHub recently updated its list of the best places to retire in the United States.
Which Retiree-Friendly Cities Are the Best for Your Wallet?
A large number of American adults are worried about outliving their finances when they retire.
But WalletHub’s annual list considers four factors to come up with its scores:
- Quality of life
- Health care
Starting with nearly 200 American cities, those four factors were then evaluated across 48 metrics, which were graded on a 100-point scale.
For our purposes, we'll only look at the top cities for retirees' affordability and the total scores for those destinations, according to WalletHub. Please see the link under the table for the cities' rankings for health care, activities and quality of life.
