Bankrate rolled out the top-ten list of the best places to retire in 2015. They seem to change every year. Virginia landed the spot as the 5th best place for retirees to live. States like Florida, Utah, and Arizona are still rated very high for retirees. Retirees don’t all want the same thing. Quiet sedate living might fit some seniors while others want a very active life. Some retirees still like being in the mix of what is going on from politics to the social scene.
It does appear however that all retirees are looking to save money. They want to economize and make very wise use of their resources. Retirees want to pay lower taxes and save on housing and other expenses like transportation. Retirees want safe surroundings where they can enjoy social activities and all that retirement has to offer. According to Bankrate, they want plenty of sunshine, low humidity, good weather, great health care systems, low tax rates and low crime.
Out of the 50 states, ten states top the list for many of the amenities retirees want. The winners on the best place to retire list are Nebraska, Arizona, South Dakota, Montana, Iowa, Virginia, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and Colorado. The number one ranked state as the best place for retirees to stake their claim is Wyoming. For those retirees who already call Wyoming home, you have made a wise choice. As for the rest, you might want to take a trip to Wyoming to see what the state filled with national parks such as the famed Yellowstone National Park – has to offer.
