Stop us if you’ve heard this before. Multiple Florida cities made a list of best places for retirement, one even earned the top spot. Deciding where to retire can be a tough decision (for some), but for Floridians, we know nothing is better than the Sunshine State.
It’s pretty obvious why people flee to Florida to retire. We have warm weather year-round, beautiful beaches, plenty of golf courses, and easy access to health care. Coincidentally, those are a lot of the factors Niche based their study on. This study was looking for cities that would score high for: weather, crime rates, residents 65 and older, housing costs, and access to amenities such as restaurants, golf courses, exercise facilities, and doctors. States like California and Arizona are also considered prime retirement destinations. To keep you from reading about the same states, a maximum of 10 places per state were featured.
Some of the most desirable retirement destinations are those located near major cities like San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles. But because cost of living is so high, it’s not ideal for people on fixed incomes. Not only do we have multiple retirement communities in Florida, but so many activities for them to take part in! We get that wasting your retirement years on a rocking chair on your front porch is no longer ideal. Seniors in Florida can choose between a variety of natural attractions.
We won’t feature all 100 best retirement cities, just the ones in Florida. If you’d like to see the whole list, click here.
