This list works off of the most recent data, so we’re looking at statistics that have just come out in 2020. There are three main categories that are being taken into consideration that we’ve listed for each state.

Affordability, quality of life, and health care are all top priority to those in retirement, so that is what we’ve gone off of. You might see some surprises in here – just because there are some states #1 in one section doesn’t mean they’re top overall!

Ultimately choosing where to retire is a very personal decision, but hopefully this list can give you a better idea of where you’ll spend what many consider the best years of their life.
