Baby boomers are on the hunt for comfortable communities to retire in. The ideal city would include plentyneighborhoods with fellow retirees, low costs, high livability, and lots of protections against elder abuse. This index from ADC-FL.com takes those factors into consideration as well as a few others in trying to find the best American cities with the highest “retirability.”
While the index ranked more than 350 American cities, this infographic showcases the top 50 best cities and the top 50 worst cities for retirement. Where is the best? With 54% of locals over the age of 65, low elderly poverty, famously high, golf-cart-driven livability, and the highest median age in the country, The Villages, Florida, ranks as the top city for “retireability.”
The worst city has only 9% of elderly locals, 26.5% of which are living below the poverty line: Laredo, Texas. Texas also happens to be a state with very few protections for the elderly. With so many different options for places to live around the U.S., this index may help those hoping to retire soon consider some important factors.
