While a lot of us have a long way to go before we can even think of retirement, that doesn’t stop us from dreaming about where we want to spend our later years. Well, there’s no doubt there are some places that are much better suited for retirees, so before you start planning the next phase in your life you may want to take note.
“U.S. News & World Report” has just come out with their 2018 Best Places To Retire list, evaluating the country's 100 largest metropolitan areas based on how well they meet Americans' expectations for retirement, looking at things like housing affordability, healthcare and overall happiness.
It's no secret that Florida is filled with retirees so it shouldn’t be too much of a shock that a city in the Sunshine state does indeed take the top spot on the list. Sarasota, Florida ranks at number one getting high scores for overall happiness, thanks to the warm temperatures, as well as a vibrant cultural and art scene. Meanwhile Lancaster, Pennsylvania comes in second thanks to their low retiree taxes and high quality healthcare.
